Microphone Volume Low or Mic Not Working in windows

Trouble:

In this post, we are going to tell you the basic things to take care when connecting a microphone to the computer and using it correctly.

Seems simple to use a microphone with computer, but believe me, if it starts bugging, its a big problem. One of our readers submitted a problem:

When I Started Microphone, volume is too low.

Microphone is not working on my computer, same microphone works fine on other computer.

microphone-for-computer

We have covered microphone related problems with Windows Vista in this article, but now lets look at it from a generic way. So we will cover three things here:

  1. Connecting Microphone to the correct port
  2. Recording Device / Microphone Settings / Sound Settings
  3. Controlling the volume of microphone

Read on for details.

Fix:

 

Connect Microphone to Correct port

 

First of all, it is very important to connect microphone to the correct port on the computer. Some Computers have front and back panels to connect microphones, some have only back panels. All of them have a pink colored port for microphones which is a convention. Make sure you plug in the microphone in this pink port only. For laptops, you will see a small symbol on the port which distinguishes microphone port from speaker port, as seen in image below.

front-panel-ports

Desktop Front Panel Ports

speaker-microphone-ports

Desktop Rear-Panel Ports

laptop-mic-speaker-port

Laptop Speaker Microphone ports

 

Microphone Settings

 

After you have connected it correctly to the computer, make sure that your computer has correct audio drivers installed. For any problems related to drivers, see this link.

Go to Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices Icon. It will open a windows like one below:

sound-and-audio-device-properties

Click on Audio Tab , and now select your Sound Driver or Sound Card Name from the drop down list if it is not correctly selected.

select-default-sound-recording-device

After Selecting correct options, click OK and you are done with this configuration setting.

 

Volume Control for Microphone

 

Double Click on Volume Control Icon in your system trayvolume-control-icon-in-tray, it will open up the volume control window. Click on Options > Enable Advanced Properties.

No Again Click on Options > Properties, it will open a properties window as seen below:

 volume-control-menu

On Properties window, in Playback option, check the Microphone checkbox as seen in picture below: palyback-microphone-volume

Now in Recording, Check the Microphone as seen below and press OK.

recording-microphone-volume

Now you can see the Microphone Volume Control, here you can increase or decrease microphone volume as per your need. Also, if you are still not happy with Microphone volume, click on advanced button, just below it. This will open an Advanced Control for Microphone window as below.

microphone-volume-control

On this window, check 1 Mic Boost. It will boost the volume of your microphone.

extra-microphone-volume

Now you got all the volume control of you microphone in your hand :) , Hope you find this useful! Let us know through comments.

I did all the instructions from your side and I even re-install the driver installed in my laptop but it seems that it is not working at all. Moreover, I tried my microphone not only in YM but also in Skype but still same problem occur. Please help on this issue, what seems the problem???
The problem is that I can able to hear the person who I am talking with but he can’t hear me…

thanks you.

Tiyash Paul March 24, 2009 at 10:42 am

Hii.. My problem is :
When i connect the microphone to my computer, uncheck the “Mute” option beside “Microphone” in volume controls, no sound ( hissing or whatever ) comes from the speakers. The “microphone boosts” ( 1 or 2 ) are checked coorectly.. However, the sound recording function works properly..

P.S. Earlier i had SoundMax Audio Drivers and all was fine, Now i have Realtek.. Please suggest a solution..

Aqil Ahmed April 22, 2009 at 8:57 pm

Hi,

Aparesh mukherjee July 13, 2009 at 3:44 am

I am using an imported microphone in my TOSHIBA laptop set.It was working well,But all on a sudden while on vedio chat my microphone is defunged.Its hearing unit is working allright, but mice is not working. I have tried all the instructions given in this website to rectify the microphone but failed. I have checked the continuity of the mic adaptor, it is found to be O.K.

Please give me the guide line what to do, and how can I activate my microphone.

Anxiously wating for your valuable advice.

With regards,

Rohit July 13, 2009 at 6:13 am

@Apresh
this might mean that your mic has gone bad, try using ti on some other computer, if it doesn’t work there too, get it replaced.

Aparesh mukherjee July 21, 2009 at 10:30 am

Hi Rohit,

As per your instruction I have tried out with a new microphone set, still it is not working. I can hear my partner”s voice but he can”t. I have tried all the instruction given in this web site but still it is not acting.

A caption comes on the window as:

RUNDLL
” Error loading C:WINDOWSSystem32Nvcpl.dll.
A dynamic link library {DLL} initialization routine failed.

Is this caption can make any harm in my microphone?
Please give me your valuable advice in rectifying the microphone.
Anxiously wating for your reply.

Regards,
APARESH.

Aparesh Mukherjee August 9, 2009 at 1:56 am

Karthikdsacred October 15, 2009 at 12:46 am

Guys it seems that you port is not working
search for some usb pin connector that will work i guess
this is not a problem with the headset or mic but with ur port
ur hardware might be very old and this is the first time i guess ur trying the mic on it

I even tried to connect only an ext. microphone (which is guranteed working in every other notebook)but without success. The problem is everything works once and next moment it is not working. I changed the drivers also but no success. I noticed that double clicking on speaker icons and clicking on options and further trying to go into properties and advanced controls the advanced control area is shaded and does not let me chane the advaced properties. I am stuck can you tell me what could be the problem and how can I resolve it. Thanks.

Gren June 29, 2010 at 8:37 pm

Now, I’m pretty savvy with computers… but sometimes we all overlook something.
I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why my mic wasn’t working, reading this simple step-by-step covered just enough bases to point me in the right direction.

Cheers :)

tafseer July 26, 2010 at 9:53 pm

I solved this problem for myself, and this should work, at least in windows 7, just disable all audio recording devices except mic, including line-in and sterio mix then plug mic/headset into mic port and that should do it. Hope This Helps :D

I have creative speaker 2.1,which i connect on rear side of cpu and i have headphone with earpiece and microphone,which i connect on front side panel in my cpu. I have sigma tel audio sound card. I have referred one of the solution on troublefixers.com and from that i found few below things which are not shown in my desktop which are:
1- on double clicking window volume bar, in option,i found ‘Advance controls’ disabled
2-and in window volume bar,when i go to options->properties->Playback, I don’t find Microphone entry there.
Will above be the main reason for non functioning of microphone or some other.

Today I cannot use my mic to make calls through google voice. Nothing changed to make it do that, but I have lost track of what I have tried to do TODAY to get it to work again. Nothing I have seen relates to anything on my computer. I have an HP, with VISTA…and it doesn’t have an internal mic, requiring the use of an external one. It SHOWS that it is working, but I cannot make outgoing sound. I can hear them talking to ME, but I cannot talk to THEM. HELP! I have no outside connection right now without it!

Thanks….I followed your advice and microphone now works. One part of the microphone settings has a part called “Alternate microphone” . That box was ticked.I unticked it and that is when my mic started working. Maybe you could update this page to show that box is in addition to the “mic boost” box

jennifer January 20, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and since installing Windows the microphone has stopped working in that when I use SKYPE i can hear the other person but they cannot hear me. I have done everything suggested including control panel/sound/recording and changing the in built microphone for a plug in one but neither will work. I have tried reinstalling new drivers from the Dell website and that has not worked. I have checked the sound and it is not on mute its on the maximum. Please advise what I can do If you know how to fix this problem as I’ve tried everything I can think of.. Many thanks
