Windows (8) Mic Volume Issues
Posted on 2013-11-09
After one of the many Win8 automated updates, my mic stopped working.
The mic is:
Working fine (on another PC)
3.5mm Jack (part of headset)
Showing up as Line-In, not Microphone in Device Manager
Shows some movement in the Levels meter using the mic setup wizard as consistent with Line-In input as Mic, which i understand is expecting much higher voltage inputs.
Has the level in the Levels tab in the Sound dialog set at appropriate level.
I guess it would be a good thing if I could get it to be seen as a mic rather than as Line-In. I have set 'Listen To This Device' to true, but i guess its not the right input level?
