My microphone suddenly stopped working last night. I am a gamer and use it for voice chat.
I have a Dell XPS L702X (Laptop) with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS. It has an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40 GHz.
When I run a diagnostic it detects no errors and it says all of my drivers
are up to date. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver
and checking to see if the devices were enabled. My friends say they CAN hear me, but it sounds muffled (like a tin can/talking into a pillow).
I tried unplugging my headset mic and using the built in onboard mic and it picked up no sound at all. I'm hoping to get this issue sorted out soon.
I will be the first to admit I am not the most PC literate, so if anyone who is available to help needs more information, I would be glad to provide it.
