    USB Audio Issues

    I have a Blue Tiki USB microphone. But the audio input is very low and i went to the sound settings and turned it up and it made no difference, The boost microphone slider was missing, i also turned the sensitivity in beats audio ADWare than came with the laptop because my laptop has beats speakers.
    I was wondering if there is a way to get the boost microphone slider back, or some software you do what disc mounters do but with audio and with a boost

    this what i normally looks like: Gyazo - 5550f1e7f62d23eb251f8d1f6ef965a6.png

    What mine looks like : Gyazo - d1f88ce1ef59c880221a63b3c876b16a.png

    Thanks for reading

    Try an uninstall/reinstall of the microphone. With the mic connected (and on if it has a switch), go to the Device Manager and it should be listed under the Sounds section (if detected). If not, you will probably have an Unknown device listed in the USB section.

    Whichever section its in, RIGHT click on the entry for the device to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Disconnect the mic from the PC. Restart the PC and after Windows has initialized connect the Mic and Windows should detect it as a new device and reinstall. Assuming this worked at one time, this should fix it.
