Before I get the same answers as I got when I googled this question, heres what I have ruled out

  • Microphone isn't muted, Its at 100 and at 30 db boost
  • Drivers are updated and installed correctly

It is built in, and it is showing up, but when I talk in the mic or tap it, it doesn't detect the sound and the gray bar stays gray. I am in my recording devices, not a program. It won't work in any program anyways.

Please help?
