Microphone works in sound hardware wizard but stops working after test Tags: Sound Cards Hardware Microphone Sigmatel Components Last response: November 29, 2010 2:41 AM in Components Share Edl_88 March 22, 2010 9:18:30 PM Hello, My internal and external microphone works in the sound hardware wizard but stops working after testing successfully. I have a Sigmatel sound card and am running Windows XP SP3. I've updated the BIOS and Sigmatel audio driver. Thanks for any help.

It's just odd that the mike would work during the hardware test and stop working after the test is completed. | Report abuse aktohl November 28, 2010 6:17:23 PM I am having exactly the same problem and have been searching for a solution for days.

Ed | Report abuse gamerk316 November 29, 2010 2:41:42 AM Define "Not working"; are we talking a single program here, or what? As a test, try going into the microphone properties and enable "Monitering" and see if you can hear anything. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Microphone works in sound hardware wizard but stops working after test> Related ressources: ForumSound isn't working properly ForumRealtek audio stops working completely randomly ForumDVI stops working after POST (HD 6450) ForumMy microphone stopped working ForumMicrophone Wizard ForumMicrophone is mute at start up ForumMicrophone input not working ForumMedusa 5.1 USB Microphone Not Working ?
