Recording device [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question naslash - Last answered on Nov 3, 2017 at 03:21 PM by frustrated
Hello,
I am having trouble with the recording device. I have tried everything I read in this forum, and even more. I have deleted my recording device by mistake and I am having a hard time retrieving it. It says that the audio output and every other device is working properly. So it basically says everything in the sound card is working, but my microphone won't work because it can't detect a recording device. I am using a Sony VAIO VGN-FE48G/H with windows vista. I can't even find the model of my laptop on the sony website to download drivers, even though it's quite recent. Help will be appreciated.

Thank You.

HELLO! THIS SAME PROBLEM HAD HAPPENED TO ME THIS MORNING, I DID PLENTY OF RESEARCHES TO TRY TO ENABLE BACK MY MIC AND I DID NOT FIND ANY HELP AT ALL! BUT OUT OF LUCK, I FOUND THE SOLUTION MYSELF.

I CURRENTLY HAVE WINDOWS 7 AND I THINK IT WOULD BE THE SAME FOR VISTA & ETC.

START MENU > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE & SOUND > SOUND > MANAGE AUDIO DEVICES > RECORDING TAB > RIGHT CLICK IN BLANK BOX & CHECK "SHOW DISABLED DEVICES.

TAAAA-DAA! IT WORKS NOW! HOPE THIS HELPS! ;D ENJOY!

This does not work for me as I right click and there is nothing that says "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices".

Exactly what area are you talking about?

right clicked on the Speaker icon in the Notification Area of the
Taskbar, selected Recording Devices, right clicked in the window and selected
both Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices.

Easier method that worked for me with Windows 7 (using Fatal1ty HS-800 headset and mic did not work):

Control Panel - - Troubleshooting tab - - Hardware and Sound - - Troubleshoot audio recording tab

computer troubleshoot/fixed it for me - - didn't have to do anything but click on what it asked me for

Hiya, the same thing has happened to me, i'm using the Sony Vaio cr31s, and I seriously can't find any way to fix it. Would the only way to sort it out be to wipe the laptop clean and start over? I have the discs?

Thanks

Had the same prob with an AR51M. Solution is to dowlnoad the latest audio drivers from the VAIO site. Good luck.

Amazing how one answer can help SO many of us. Yes, I too thought that I, somehow, deleted a driver or something. However, like so many of us I had only hidden the device from the dialogue box. I'm already married or I would consider the same as some of the previous postings!
