Re: My mic stopped working

Have you tried to uncheck the option "Automatically adjust microphone settings" (in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings)?

Re: My mic stopped working

yes, I've tried every setting option there is in the program.  There is no reason at all for skype to interact with the microphone in such an unstable way.

Re: My mic stopped working

I have the EXACT same problem with my Logitech c110 cam/mic. I did EVERYTHING and it doesn't work if i scream at the mic it registers and i can't figure why I have done everything. Install/reinstall sensitivity settings,everything. I can't get it to work.

Re: My mic stopped working

Try to connect your webcam to another USB port. Avoid using unpowered USB hubs.

Re: My mic stopped working

I did that. Sometimes it did work for a short period of time. When I used another port "installing new device" etc popped up worked for a day then the same happened. When I run out of ports nothing could be done. If I scream to it it works. I installed and uninstalled everything twice. I went to all the possible option tabs. Nothing.

Re: My mic stopped working

Please,  run the DirectX diagnostics tool.

 

Go to Windows Start and in the Run box type dxdiag.exe and press the OK button. This will start the DirectX diagnostics program. Run this diagnostics and save the results to a file. Please, attach this file to your post.

 

Be aware that you will have to zip this file before attaching it here.

Re: My mic stopped working

There is nothing in the diagnostics file that can explain the issue. Have you tried with a complete uninstall/reinstall of the Logitech drivers?

Re: My mic stopped working

I know. I took a look at them too. I send it to you in case I missed something. Well guess what. At the 57th time I plugged it in and out it worked. Now it's ok. God knows for how long. Thank you for your efforts anyway.
