Hello there i got a big problem. No one of my mics seems to work sinse july, middle of july...

I tried with

Steelseries siberia 650. Its own "soundcard", Usb and 3.5mm
Steelseries siberia 800 Usb. also has "chatmix " for xbox, even tried that cable nothing works. i know i know its for xbox and im on PC but i was desperate.
Samson meteor mic Usb

tried all different usb port is got, my gamepad, keyboard, mouse all works in thoose Usb ports

to add, all headsets works fine playing games with, listen to music, YT, whatever, its just the mic that does not work for some reason.

The thing is that when i go to controlpanel --> sound --> input ---> properties of the choosen mic and check " listen to this device" i can hear myself.
But when i try it in steam, Discord and teamspeak there is nothing coming through

I dont know what i did or didnt do, im not an expert in anyways in software but i know my way around and it pisses me off even more that i do not know what
the problem is. so i guess i actually dont know anything.

Pls pls help me i justwanna get back to gaming and communicating in games again :p.

And i am pretty new to Win10, i heard on a stream that someone said " when win10 gets an update my mic turn itself off" ?
