    Windows not receiving audio input from mic

    How old is this headset? I had a similar issue with an ancient version of the HUE webcam that I'd bought back when Windows 7 was still in beta, and the audio drivers for it won't work in Win10, but the camera does. That one it looks like the only solution is to buy a much more recent version...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Okay, Thursday I updated my machine to Win10 version 1903, and haven't had a freeze-hang since. I've been to three different music-club events in SL (which were pretty much guaran-dang-teed to bring a hang to BZZZZZZZZZZ!!) and got all the way through the entire event and beyond all three...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, a couple days ago I was doing a 3D render in DAS Studio, and the machine suddenly shut off as if I'd yanked the cord out of the wall. Basically just went FOOOoooooommm! Today I pulled the machine out, dusted it out a bit with compressed air can(s), checked at least superficially that the...

    download photo

    Yeah, some webforums and whatnot, to implant an image into the post one typically copies the desired image into the clipboard -- say, by lassoing it in Paint and invoking Copy -- and then hitting Ctrl-V to paste it directly into the body of the post. Dunno if the one you're dealing with is one...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, all the other random hangs have been gone since my reinstall-in-place, but when I went to a (different, less special-effects-laden) music club in SL, after a half hour there, it hung to bzzzzzzzzzz and I had to punch reboot. Gah. This doesn't happen on my laptop, also running 1809, but...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Turns out it doesn't want to install from safe mode, so I went back to regular mode and let it install Win10 over the existing Win10 from there. Took hours, but this time it got all the way to the end. I've had my machine running for hours now without random hangs, but haven't yet tried doing...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, it got stuck at 46% for more than 4 hours before I finally gave up on it and quit out of it. I'm wondering if I might have better luck trying this in Safe Mode with Internet, but right now I decided to go ahead and let Windows update me at least back to the current incremental updates of...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Wait, "clean install" means completely wipe my HDD and do a totally from scratch install of EVERYTHING? That is absolutely NOT an option, there are too many things on here that I would not be able to readily get configured back the way I need them to be. I was interpreting "clean install" as...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Okay, when I booted from the DVD and it gave me some longwinded statement that the upgrade option isn't available if I boot from the disc and recommending I start it from the desktop and go onto the disc from there. It does that one the other machine in the house, too. (I have to do that every...

    Update anomaly

    I'm not even sure what the anomaly here even is. Is it the fact it's stating you're up to date, or is it some very subtle thing about the date its showing? I don't even get what the "anomaly" even is, since you haven't been clear as to what in those two screen-grabs constitutes "the anomaly."...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    If I am interpreting post #20 correctly, I should click the "Download tool now" button (the second of the blue buttons) rather than the "Update now" button (the first one) on that page. I have burned a DVD of the iso from the 2nd button, the "Download tool now" button. Should I launch that DVD...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, I finally elected to do the rollback, and I spent several hours trying to bend this thing to my will, and it refusing to play ball. It gave me only 3 points I could go back to, all of them being from Friday, even though the update that took me out of the version of WIn10 that worked fine...

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit build 17763.437 hanging to a buzzing noise

    Well, the trouble with reverting to a previous version of Win10 is that under normal operations, its going to want to reinstall the updates again at its earliest convenience, and that page doesn't make any reference to how to turn that off. IIRC, it had to be done in some nonstandard way, but I...
