I've quit every Realtek program in the task manager that was open (I got some other issues with audio and thought that that would fix it). Now I guess some processes did not start running when I restarted the PC. So now if I plug the microphone into the plug, windows will recognise it and set it as default. But when I use Microsoft dictaphone, I get the prompt that the microphone is not working and when I check in the control panel/sound there is no volume picked up.
How do I start those processes back, for my microphone to pick-up sound?
