I'm Fox. And my computer has been behaving oddly since last night. For some reason when using skype or anything after using skype, the microphone cuts out. What I mean by this is that when you go into recording devices and properties for that device, in the levels tab, it mutes itself. If you adjust the slider and turn the volume back up, it mutes itself again after 1-3 seconds. This happens with three different microphones, 2 USB microphones and the built-in one. The actual audio I receive is fine. It's just the microphone that does this.
I've tried solving this problem on my own and I'll list me attempted solutions here.
I've tried uninstalling the drivers for all of the sound cards and then restarting to reinstall them. No luck.
I've tried adjusting the microphone properties to disallow applications from taking exclusive control of it. No luck.
I've tried downloading the free version of Malwarebytes in order to see if it was a virus. No luck.
All of these I've tried and I'm not sure what to do. I run Windows 10. Another problem that I've been having is that my computer does this odd thing where it refuses to connect to wifi. It says it cannot connect to that network. If I wait a few minutes, it will connect to the network. Other devices don't have this issue. I'm not sure if this is potentially related so I thought I'd list it here as well.
