[SOLVED] Microphone and Line In settings in Windows 10

Hello,

I have a problem with setting up my headset (Trust gtx 310) microphone in W10. For a long time, everything was working correctly. Today, after connecting both jacks to the mb, i got a notification, asking if the second one is supposed to be a microphone or a line-in. Accidentally, I marked line-in. (My motherboard - Dell optiplex 9010 sff - has a combined port for mic and line in). Since then, the input/recording device has been marked as line in everywhere in Windows and the microphone stopped working. At first, I didn't think much of it, because I thought I will just change it back in the settings, but I can't seem to find a way to do it in either the sound settings or the sound control panel. After plugging the mic, the audio device is just listed (under "recording" in scp) as Line in, with no apparent way to do anything about it. Is there any way to make the system recognize the port/device as a microphone instead of a line in again?

Thanks for any reply
(PS: The mentioned notification question will not pop up again, because I also marked "don't ask again". I know, I know, stupid, but I didn't notice I marked the incorrect option).

Hello,

Thanks a lot for your help. While uninstalling and reinstalling drivers didn't initially work for me, it was a useful advice in the end. After everything else failed, I tried restoring a previous state of Windows from a restore point, which by itself didn't solve the problem either. However, following your advice once again after doing the restoration procedure finally did the trick. So thanks again and I'll leave this here, for the eventuality that it might help someone with a similar problem.

Have a great day.
