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.
