Hi @Nitin09


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you


Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.


Try the steps below to resolve the issue -


Step 1: Check the microphone hardware

Make sure the microphone has power, is turned up, and functioning.

  1. If the microphone operates on battery power, make sure the batteries are correctly seated and are functional. If the microphone operates on external power, make sure that all the power connections are secure and the power cord is connected to a power source.

  2. If the microphone has a volume control, make sure it is turned up half way.

  3. Disconnect the microphone from the computer port, and then re-connect it. If the microphone uses a USB port, try connecting it to a different USB port on the computer.

  4. Connect the microphone to another device, such as another computer, and then try to use it.

    • If the microphone functions correctly when connected to the other device, a driver or computer recognition issue might be causing the problem. Continue to the next step to check for an update to the audio driver.

    • If the microphone does not function correctly when connected to the alternative device, then the microphone might need to be replaced.

 Step 2: Update the audio driver

Step 3: Run the Audio Check in HP Support Assistant

Step 4: Use the Troubleshooting tool
