    Have you tried updating drivers and all that stuff? Is it a separate mic or built in?

    It's probably a conflict in ports (or a driver) can you go to control panel and see if your mics are fighting over a port? Or if the mic is fighting over a port with something else?

    I'm guessing these two things are in conflict with each other. Try disabling your web came and restarting your computer (unless you already have done that?)

    my webcam isnt enabled,, I have tried that before, its the laptop LOL. The mic just had a mind of its own, I noticed it last year when I used to do alo of the speech research hits. One day it just decided it would work when it wanted and not when it didnt
