Steam Mic Issue

Post by wmpenguin on Sun Nov 01, 2015 3:16 pm

As the title suggests i am having issues with my microphone working on steam,

My mic is working fine on teamspeak and other such programs so THE MIC IS NOT THE PROBLEM (Sorry for the caps but I've been searching for a fix for an hour and a half now and the amount of people saying "Go to your sound settings and ensure its set up right" is just annoying),
Steam detects my mic but when i go to test the mic no sound is being picked up, this becomes a large issue when i'm playing games such as cs:go and need to speak to my team, anyone got any suggestions?

Have you enabled in-game voice in the normal game settings (or wherever it could be)?
If this only happens with valve games, have you enable voice chat? (in console: voice_enable 1) eventually, turn up voice chat; in csgo: Voice_scale 2 ('1' being 100%)
You have selected the mic as primary source for sound on your pc? (right-clicked your volume icon, and clicked recording devices, and chosen your desired microphone as default)
In-game, have you chosen a way to use the mic (push-to-talk, voice recognition, open mic)? Have you mapped a key to speak with your mic?

The issue is resolved, Nvidia GeForce Experience was messing up the mic and it now works Very Happy
