Microphone Bug


I have a problem about mic. I use windows 7(32-bit), and have latest sound driver. The problem is, i plug it in at proper "jack" ( the pink one ). I un-mute it and put the volume on max. I can hear on my headset when im poking the mic but when i try to record, or to speak with someone over skype / msn, the green line is not rising up, and people are complaining to me that they can't hear me. I've been searching forums about this. I am sure that its not cause of driver, or non-working mic. Some even wrote that it could be a bug at windows 7, or driver http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/562f2350-44d2-4495-981d-c416d0337bd7

I have one desktop mic, and headset mic, same problem at both. Oh, and by the way, i never had this kind of problem on windows xp.

Taskbar Bug

Found a small bug in the highlighting of applications on the taskbar. Tested with windows explorer, haven't tested any others. Always reproducible on my machine.

Open two windows. Show the previews by mousing over the icon. Mouse over one of the windows, and hover over the close button. Once the window comes to the front, close it using the close button on the preview, then move your mouse off the preview so that the preview will close soon. The highlight stays on the icon no matter where you move the mouse, until you focus another window or mouse over a taskbar icon again.

Cant Get Microphone To Work

As the title says, my computer does not recognize when i plug a microphone in. I am using a pair of headphones with a microphone attached to it. I have tried 2 different sets so i know the actual mic works.

Under control panel -> hardware and sound -> manage audio devices, recording tab, it says "no audio devices are installed" i have tried using 2 different ports and it still doesn't work.

I am running windows 7 home ultimate. Can anyone shed some light on what i can do?

Edit: i recently installed to windows 7 from vista, could it be that some sort of audio driver didnt get installed or xfered over correctly? How would i figure this out?

Microphone Not Working

I've just installed windows 7 pro on my hp g7000 laptop, however the built in microphone doesn't work! It worked in vista and even in ubuntu (i think), so why not windows 7?

Are there any official / unofficial drivers or updates around to solve this problem? I've noticed that there are quite a lot of people saying that their built in microphones stop working when they upgrade to win 7.

Has microsoft released a fix for this?

Outlook 2007 Bug

After a clean windows  7 install, outlook 2007 places a space before each apostrophe on all outgoing email. I have found that use of ctrl + z fixes it, but we shouldn't have to use it each time. It is annoying. A fix at the source of the bug is necessary. My research finds this is a common new issue among w7/office users.

I have been using w7 since it's rc and hosted a w7 party last month - so i am not a newbie. This is not a formatting issue, rather a bug in the code somewhere. Let's get it fixed microsoft. Everything else works great!

Install Update Bug

I've install windows 7 and like it's excitement, i install the update, but i found that the problem is in the networking. Suddenly i cannot connect to the internet using my broadband connection, the troubleshooting is i have to disable my lan, and try to repair the trouble, and it can connect again to the net. But, if i don't install the update, it can connect anytime without doing the "ritual", i've try to restore the system earlier before the update. Any suggestion or the update is really a bug?

Opening Folders Bug

I notice this: you double click on a folder in explorer and it opens to reveal other folders, no problem. Now have you noticed that when you keep clicking on folders that the clicked folder which is showing in the open dialog window jumps all the way to the bottom so that now you have to first scroll that selected folder all the way up just to see the sub folders contained inside of it.
 
This is very very annoying. I don't want that every time i click on a sub folder it goes all the
Way down to the bottom of the open dialog box, it should stay where it is, but no, instead it
Falls all the way down to the bottom and each time i open a sub folder i have keep scrolling the
Sub folder list up, this is a pain in the buttocks and i consider it to be a bug.

Logitech Microphone Not Working

I have a logitech internet headset which i haven't used in a while using realtek hd audio drivers. I wanted to use skype but my microphone wasn't picking up. Now i've tried it both on my laptop and another pc using winxp so its not the headset.

1) it is connected to the right jack (pink)
2) i used windows sound recorder and nothing was recorded when speaking into it.
3) microphone is enabled in sound recording devices, but the bars to the right of the  microphone icon never goes higher than one green bar.

4) the microphone is not muted, i checked in realtek audio manager and windows sound mixer, also have volume for mic turned up all the day and it is set to 30 db.
 
5) i tried updating audio drivers, nothing new was found, uninstalled and used ms drivers and it still didn't work, then reinstalled the original drivers and did not work.

The speakers are also working fine and have worked fine. Form searching around i have noticed this seems to be a common problem that hasn't been resolved anywhere, is there anything i can do to get mic working?

Microphone Sound Not Detected

Microphone issues i recently got a hp computer with windows 7 installed on it, i got the updates, installed skype and when i went into a call, the other person couldn't hear my microphone, i know these things: it's not a problem with skype. It's not my mic, as it worked on the previous computer. Yes, the mic is unmuted, and plugged into the correct jack i've looked at all of the troubleshooting guides, and the only result i have received from any of them is a loud screeching sound from my mic when i click "listen" in the control panel>sound>recording>microphone area.

I've downloaded and installed any updates that the trouble shooting guide suggests i do. Yet still nothing. All i'm getting is the same screeching noise that i wasn't getting before, i checked all the mic settings and it's enabled, unmuted, and the computer says it's getting the signal from the mic, i even did a troubleshooting check and it said it found no problems. And again, i know for a fact it's not the mic itself because it was working on the previous computer, and while i was changing computers no damage was done to the mic.

Microphone Not Picking Up Any Sound

I recently got a new dell studio 17 laptop with windows 7. I like to game alot so i have a headset with a microphone. My computer does not show the microphone picking up my voice, or any sound at all. It is plugged into the correct jack, i have turned the levels up and down and the db as well. I've made sure it's not muted, and it still doesn't pick up any noise. I've also made it the default device and default communications device and still nothing. Even tried, disabling the built in microphone on my computer to see if that was interfering. Still doesn't pick up any sound. .

Power Saver / Graphics Bug

My asus computer has this power4gear battery performance tracker/ruinmylife software. I should mention that i always keep my laptop plugged in for the duration of my session, then unplug it after shutting down. When i turn on my computer, everything is fine. But when i start to do anything, anything, an extremely intrusive and dictatorial performance pop up invades my computer screen, telling me that it is switching power plans (nothing changes during this 'switch'), and will not go away or minimize for at least two minutes.

If i try to do anything while it is on the screen, the screen immediately goes black and stays that way until the pop up decides to call it quits. I know it has something to do with nvidia graphics, but if i click on the tray icon nothing happens. Occasionally, after childishly trying to click the pop up away roughly 50 times it starts to fade white, behaving like a non-responsive program (which it obviously is). Every so often the pop up appears multiple times in one session, even if i'm doing one thing for the duration of my time on the computer.

If i'm gaming, i am hard-pressed to minimize the program if the occasion calls for it because bringing it back up each time dims the screen more and more. Is there anything i can do or press to make this pop up go away? It's just really, really annoying!

Ventrilo / Microphone / Drivers Issue

I recently purchased windows 7 professional (i'm running 32 bit). I like to game online, and i use vent for my voip service. I can hear people fine, and when i press my ptt key, the green microphone lights up and xmit appears, but no one can hear a thing that i say. I checked device manager, so all the drivers are updated, but when i log into vent it says that "no sound driver is available for use". Nothings muted, and it's not an issue with my microphone because i tried it with my friend's. My mic worked with xp before i upgraded, and i have no idea what's wrong now. I don't use a sound card, and it says all my drivers are updated in device manager.

Sound Card Crashing On Microphone Use

So basically, i can listen to music on itunes and use sound in any program around, until i began to use my microphone. I can use chat on aim and skype, but the second i start a voice chat with someone, my sound crashes until i restart my computer. I've run both self-help tools from the website, and i can't provide you with what sound card i'm using because 1. ) I forgot where to search. 2. ) When i finally did find it a few times recently, it said no sound card could be found. I know that to be untrue, but how do i go about fixing it?

Bug - Multi Monitor And Apps

I have 2 monitors.

Master monitor (left)
Secondary monitor (right)

I moved office and for cable length reason i changed the secondary monitor to be on the left. I set windows 7 to tell it that the secondary monitor is now on the left not the right.

Previous apps that i've used on the second monitor seem to default in the past to always loading on the screen on the right. Now when i open them application i can only see them in the task bar, they do not appear on screen. If i tell windows 7 my secondary monitor is on the right, i can then see the application on that screen.

This is a bug, windows should know that the secondary monitor is no longer connected on the right and it should not be loading the application window to a monitor that does not exist.

Usb Microphone Stopped Working

I just recently purchased a blue eyeball 2. 0 webcam/microphone. Once connected i was testing it out on chatroulette.com and asked people if they could hear me. All good so far. Then i used windows sound recorder, sounded great, crisp and clear.

As i continued to check setting and adjust volumes, i noticed the voice recognition/text-to-speech program built into windows. That intrigued me so i started the "train your computer to better understand you" did a couple of those and wanted to start the voice recognition. Windows asked if i wanted to do the tutorial, so i figured that would be a good idea. As i went through the tutorial it asked me to say "my weekend was good", to make the program not understand, it worked so far.

But next it asked me to say "show speech options", nothing happened, i said it again and again, nothing. Then i realized that little bar in voice recognition wasn't moving. So i just closed the tutorial, and then went back to windows voice recorder nothing. Out of nowhere it stopped capturing any voice or sound through the mic.

I tried everything i could think, and even what other threads said. I made sure it was defaulted, i made sure it wasn't muted, i disabled and enabled, i uninstalled drivers and reinstalled drivers. I've tried switching usb ports. I've tried it all. Also there's no sound card drivers i could get, since it is through usb. Also, just for giggles i installed the latest updates for the sound card, that of course didn't do anything. The webcam/mic is plug-n-play, and it was working, so i know it didn't break in 10 minutes. If anyone could help me out, that would be great. I'm a sad panda.

Windows 7 64-bit
Custom built computer
Blue eyeball 2. 0 (supports xp, vista, win 7, and mac)

Win 7 Rtm Taskbar Bug

I am running windows 7 rtm x64 from technet. I apply the setting to never combine the icons on the taskbar. Then i open two windows of the same program, lets say word. When i rolled over with the mouse on the beta, the blue color would stretch across both windows very nicely. Now, in the rtm, it only stretches across one window, stops and does it to the other when i roll over the other. It does not look good. Also, is there any clarification that the retail build out today is the same as the rtm?

Game Spider Solitaire Bug

I found a bug in spider solitaire, on xp64, don't know if it still exists in windows 7. I was playing a "simple" game, and removed 7 suits of spades before trying to deal the last set of 10 cards. With 7 suits removed, there were only 3 cards remaining in play. When i attempted to deal, i got the error dialog "you are not allowed to deal a new row while there are any empty slots. "

The problem is i don't have enough cards left to fill all the empty slots, so there is no way to complete the game. I did some quick calculations, and decided the odds of this situation arising are roughly 1:100 for a simple game, but much less for medium or difficult games.

Bug Report Dvd Maker

I have windows 7 home premium x64 with windows dvd maker file version: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 dated 07/13/2009 9:39 pm. When adding titles to be burned, dvd maker shows a time of 150 minutes on the dvd. It can not add mpg files correctly. A mpeg with 1:31 and another mpeg with 45 minutes and another mpeg 14 minutes shows 149 out of 150 minutes. This is incorrect since the blank dvd can only hold 120 minutes. Encoding starts and then there is an error. Nothing is written. I can create the dvd with 1:31 + 14 minutes dvd for 105 minutes.

Win7 Bug - Media Player 12 Froze

While browsing through some songs with google chrome i wanted to save one of the sounds which loaded on the websites flash music player. So i went to the directory d:usersjonappdatalocalgooglechromeuser datadefaultcache as i do similarly with mozilla firefox in windows xp. And copied the file i thought was the audio file into another directory and changed the extension to . Mp3 .

When i opened the file which turned out not to be the audio clip, windows media player 12 froze, and before i was able to move the mouse to close the application, the cursor froze as well as everything else.

The only thing that did seem to work was the song playing before i opened the file. I waited for about 5 minutes to see if the computer would suddenly wake up from its trance, but it didn't. I decided to hit the power button on my pc and restart win7. I tried once more to play the apparent file and once again, the same symptoms showed.

Re-enabling Microphone - Show Disconnected Devices

If you don't know already know. In the sound module in windows 7 there is a feature in properties to disconnect the device using the device usage drop-down menu in the general tab. I have been scouring the internet for days to try and find a solution for re-enableing my microphone. I finally found the solution purely by accident when i right clicked in the empty space where my mic was once displayed. I clicked on the option to "show disconnected devices" whola 2 devices popped up. All i had to do was go back to properties and re-connect them.

Question is:
Why have microsoft set this option to hide them by default?

Why have this feature in the first place?

Marshall Mxl Usb Microphone Problem

I purchased an mxl 990 usb mic for desktop recording. The package encouraged the user to download software based pre-amp and recording applications. Here are the links to the downloads. Soft pre-amp: http://www.Mxlmics.com/products/900_series/990_usb/990_usb.html recorder software: http://www.Mxlmics.com/products/usb/software.html 

I only installed these apps because windows 7 failed to install a driver for the mic;so i thought the manufacturer's apps would solve the driver problem. Instead, not only did the installation attempt crash my system, but windows now crashes everytime i connect the mic to the usb port. I've uninstalled both apps and the crash still occurs on connection.

Dell Inspiron 1521 Microphone Not Working

I upgraded to windows 7 a few months ago and have tried everything i can think of to get my microphone working but to no avail. It is an internal array, so i don't need to plug into the jack. I have installed the sigmatel audio drivers. The device shows up as enabled and set as my default device. The microphone is not muted, but when i go to a recording program, it reads that the microphone is not picking up any sound at all. The windows troubleshooter doesn't know what to do either, does anybody have a fix?

Bug - Bsd On Target Host When Connecting To Win7 Shares

When connecting to a network share on a windows 7 professional host, the target host (server) immediately blue-screens. This behavior is repeatable and consistent.

Scenario:

Two windows 7 professional hosts were tested. One host had a fresh load using the hp standard image. The second host had a fresh load using the microsoft retail dvd. Both hosts are members of a windows server 2003 r2 hosted activedirectory domain running in native mode. Default network settings are used on both hosts, obtaining ipv4 addresses via dhcp. Domain administrative accounts were used in all scenarios.

Tests were performed in the following manner:

1) windows 7 professional client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
2) windows 7 professional client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.
3) windows xp client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
4) windows xp client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.

In all scenarios, the target windows 7 professional host immediately blue-screens. This behavior could be duplicated 100% of the time.

Usb Microphone Input Is Overpowered By Input Device

I connected a behringer "u-phono uf0202" audio interface usb device on a toshiba qosmio x505 computer. The device takes analog signals from tape recorders and inputs digital signals to the usb port. The device is automatically identified and drivers installed - no software from the manufacturer, just microsoft drivers.microsoft drivers treat it like a usb microphone and the behringer audio interface way overpowers the input. The level setting has to be set at 2 or 3 to keep the level indicators from maxing out. Do i need to force a different driver for this device that has more output than a microphone? If so how do you get the driver installed on the right usb port every time you plug in the device?
