Default Mic Issues
Reply With Quote


Hello,

So over the last 2 weeks, something has been muting my mic. I'll join, have use of my mic for a period, then randomly, it will be muted. Its not the headset or the mic itself as I have replaced those thinking it was time for a new set. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is happening and why its being set to mute? Virus or something?
I have gone thru and set my mic to the default device in settings, I was using Razer Synapse and that's where I saw the "mute" box being checked automatically without any input from me. I deleted Synapse thinking that was the problem but it is still doing it.

You have a virus on your computer. I had the same thing happen to me about a year ago. Look up "Kotver.32" on google. It's a bit of a process to remove it, but is doable. Good luck!

If you pull up the control panel in Windows for the mic does it show that it's muted and you can un-check it?

If it is a virus I trust this site to provide good instructions:

I guess even the hackers get tired of listening to him!

It's a long shot, but do you have a physical mute/volume control on your headset cord Racer? I had something similar happen to me, and after much in-depth and technical troubleshooting, I figured out that the volume controls were getting wedged in my chair.

Yup... classic. I've done that a few times myself, especially since my new headset has a bigger mute button.
