    Problems With Microphone, 8.1 related?

    I just bought a Razer Carcharius headset a few days ago. When I plugged it in the first time, everything functioned fine. Now, Skype isn't picking up my microphone. I don't see the headset in Device Manager or Control Panel's Sound settings either. This seemed to happen after I downloaded Razer Surround and restarted my computer. Are there known problems with microphones and 8.1? Is there a way to fix this? I am using a laptop, by the way. Thanks!

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center x64

    More like the software is the problem vs Windows 8 being the problem. Is there a specific version created for windows 8.1? You can also try compatibility mode for the program to see if you can get it working: Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8

    If not, see if it works without the software.

Microphone volume very low
Hi. Before I start, yes, I have searched the forum for this issue before. I've done possibly everything everyone has said and still no fix. I've read that you have to go to Communications in the Sound window, and select Do nothing. That doesn't work. 23415 I've read that you have to go to...
