    Noob Question About Mic Setup

    My mic will not register that i am talking into it even tho it shows up in the 'recording devices.' I have it set on default

    - i have tried using it on another windows 10 laptop and it instantly works
    -I have updated all drivers through MSI
    - I have uninstalled sound drivers/mic drivers in device manager and reset
    - i have tried updating drivers in device manager and resetting
    - i have tried different ports
    - i have checked to see if it was muted and increased the boost in mic properties
    - i have tried troubleshooting in hardware and sound
    - I have tried reinstalling all windows updates
    - I have tried 'set up mic function' it doesn't pick up any noise
    - i have tried calling microsoft and msi tech support, Microsoft wants a 100 usd for 'real' tech support msi couldnt help me and suggested more of the same
    - i have tried mostly all the troubleshooting on google results and many YT videos suggesting the same things listed above

    After the MSI Live Updated it now notifies me that i have plugged it an and i can see what slot it is plugged into in realtek sound manager but still no green bars in 'recording devices' when i talk into it.

    I have completely exhausted my personal capabilities i don't wanna cave and give Microsoft another $100 for them to tell me: reinstall windows, that is not a 'fix' in my book

    Please help any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum. Is it a stero mic or mono if its a mono and your plugging into stero port it wont have the right connections have you checked realtech manager that the ports are set correct as with a lot you can switch ports around in software have you tried other recording software

    I haven't tried different software i'm not sure how i guess, or what to use. I have tried changing the playback devices in Mic properties (default, realtek, nvidia) with no avail. I'm not sure what kind of mic it is like i said it instantly gets green bars on my other laptop. the mic is s benwis m100

    "Ya i try the record tool i got with windows it acts like its recording any everything but i replay and there is nothing."

    What are you using to play the Win10 'Voice Recorder' audio file back ? the format is m4a
    What happens when you use the Windows sound setup. R-click the volume icon in the system tray, then 'Recording Devices'. If you have a laptop mic in webcam, it will also be listed.
    Does the microphone appear on the list ? If so, r=-click mic and 'Configure Speech Recognition'.
