One day I was playing a game with a friend and suddenly in the middle of the game, my mic had stopped working which is so irritating that why I am writing this article because most of you are facing this problem.
Method 1: Logout or Restart Discord Application
This is the simplest way of fixing any problem in modern computers. If your discord not picking up mic then you can log out the application or also restart the application. After that, your mic will start working properly for sure.
This happens because your computer sometimes fails to load all the drivers at once. If all the drivers are not working correctly then your mic might won’t work. So a simple restart can solve this problem. But this is not a permanent solution you can do this on temporary bases. Sometimes caches are the reason behind this issue so when you log out the application or restart the application, the system deleted your temporary caches files. Below we will give you some steps which help you in temporary bases like you are playing a game and mic stopped working at that time you can use these step.

Method 2: Update Audio Drive
The issue which we are facing right now, it might be old or missing audio drive which we need to update. This method should work if the simple restart method is not working.
After the update, your mic will start working properly and this method is a permanent solution to your problem. Don’t worry about it, you can easily deal with this problem after reading this article. So we have two options or way for solving this issue, one is manually and another one is automatically. We will discuss both.
#Manually Update Audio Drive
If you want to update your audio driver manually then go to browser and visit manufacturer’s website. Once you land on the website search your audio driver make sure you will download the latest one and also compatible with your system.
#Automatically update the audio driver
Doing manually is little complicated or if you don’t have time to do manually then this way is much better than that. You just need to download “Driver Easy” software and this software will automatically recognize your system and find the latest and compatible drivers for your computer. After finding the correct drive, it will automatically download and install in your system. So let’s check how this software works, we provide step by step guidance below.
#1. Click on the link and download the “Driver Easy” software.

(You can also switch into the pro version of this software which gives you lots of feature like customer support and 30 days money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with their drives.)
Method 3: Run as Administrator
First two methods are very useful but this method is just for quick access. Sometimes that type of issues only come when the application is not running properly. In simple word, whenever we run an application some of the files from the application wouldn’t be able to perform, that’s why that type of problems come. So let’s see how it works.
#1. Firstly, you just need to close the Discord Application and go to the desktop.
#2. Right-click on “Discord” application icon and click on “Run as Administrator” option.
#3. Click on yes, when the pop-up option will come and ask for administrator confirmation.
That’s it now check is your mic start working or not. If your mic still not working than must try the second method.
