  • Microphone problems

    Hello there, excuse me if its in wrong section i'm new here.
    I have problem with my microphone. It works in skype or other programms also i can hear my voice back pretty clear in dota games when i have voice_loopback 1, other players cannot hear me. i tried everything ( uninstall driver, download new from official site, even to install them as windows 8 compatibility).

    I play from my laptop, it is an Asus X550J with Conexant Smart Audio HD drivers for audio.
    Is there any fix? Its my laptops problem or its client side problem?

    thank you in advance for your answers!

    I had the same issue, boost your microphone in properties, and set boost gain in steam settings. For some reason the level picked up by steam/dota is very low. Compared to other games and clients like Skype, Curse Teamspeak etc.

      well for me it was fixed for a while when i deleted the driver of the microphone from contextant, it was then replaced by a microsoft one and it worked for some days. I dont recall changing anything and somehow it stoped working again.... i dont know it might be DOta bug and not my mic problem since it works fine on other programms.
