View Full Version : microphone quits working after 5 minutes

Hello everyone I am new to this forum. Here is my problem. When I am in window messenger my microphone quits working after 5 minutes. So when that happens I disconnect the reconnect to finish the conversation. I have tried the audio wizard in window live, soundmax wizard and the microphone show that it is working. I have contacted my service provider and they say everything is working fine I even contacted the phone company and they say there is no problems in the line. I have checked to see if there is a conflict somewhere and nothing. I am using Xp pro. Pentium 4 with 1 gig ram. When the microphone quits working in live messenger I sign out of there to see if it is working in Skypes. It says the volume is low. I have checked the volume and it is not low. This frustrating. To me and my contacts.Because they don't like to type. The thing is that I can still hear them. Please help

I think you need to go to device manager and check the settings there. Is the microphone plugged into the back or the front of the computer or is this a laptop?

Welcome to our nice friendly New Zealand forum by the way

I have gone into the device manager and there it is showing everything working fine. I have the microphone plug into the back. When I plug it in the front it show that nothing is connected but when I do the audio wizards it will pass the tests. Like I have said I have tried every wizard that is on my system and all the programs say it is working fine. In the hidden devices it show that mdmxsdk has a yellow quotation mark beside it.

That often means it is lacking a driver. What does it say if you click on the yellow triangle?

This driver is not present ,this is not working properly or does not have all it drivers installed (Code 24). That is all that it is saying. When I looking details it shows Root/Legacy/0000 but that is all that it says and I don't even know what device this is.
