    Windows 8.1

    Microphone constantly muting itself for no reason.


    Found my mic in recording devices! and my friend can hear me. But it keeps muting itself! I had this problem before with another mic, but I don't really remember how to fix it. Help? Allow Other apps to take exclusive control is off, I disabled Automatically adjust microphone volume in skype, I set the Communications option (On another mic) To Do Nothing. Theres no svchost.exe under my name, and yes i've tried restarting. What's going on?

Hi. I updated my Nvidia drivers to latest two days ago and started getting some white line on bottom right screen. The drivers are latest, so why would it do that? Also I don't know if it's the problem, just noting what I did recently. So anyway, this line appears also on top of all other...

Help with built-in Mic and line-in Mic
