Problem: It may have been a few days ago, but i just noticed that my microphone is not emitting any sound with the ongoing setup anymore. It will, however, emit sound when using "stereo mix" as confirmed by a discord call. Unfortunately this also means the person on the other end hears whatever i am hearing, including himself.
Am i right to then consider the microphone hardware to be fine?

Things i've tried:
  • uninstalling drivers
  • changing playback devices/default communication device etc..
  • resetting properties
What i didn't try:
  • "Set up a mic" wizzard is unable to launch (error)
  • buying a new computer to try the headsets on (i kinna need them to work on THIS pc not some other)
  • reinstalling windows!
I don't know what else to do, please help.
