Cant change the default recording device

I'm trying to change my default microphone but when i set it nothing happens. I cant disable any of the devices either. I deleted my driver and then i could change it but i couldn't reinstall it so i restored to a earlier time.I went on the troubleshooter and applied the fix that makes it default and it says audio device isnt set as default-not fixed. My sound driver is the Realtek HD audio.

What is the specific Dell model? e.g. Inspiron 5010, or whatever.

Are you using the Dell supplied sound driver? If not, get the Dell driver.

What do you have listed in the Device Manager, Sound section? Post a screenshot. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

I looked at their site but there is nothing about making it the default recording device. They only talk about the configuration panel for this program and configuring for use with various programs and games.

Try and uninstall/reinstall. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall it. This fixes a lot of flakey problems.

Sounds like that took over your sound. Did you only uninstall the Screaming Bee Audio? That should not have wiped out your RealTek.

Check the Sound Panel/Playback section. Your "Speakers" (RealTek) should be set as the default playback device.
