Muted sound after using microphone?

Hello i'm having a problem using any microphones (i've tried 4 different ones so far)- at some point after the mic is plugged in my sound is completely muted until i restart the computer. All my drivers are up to date and this only occurs when the mic is plugged in. Also video playback such as youtube plays slowly when this happens.

Any advice?

Ok right click on the speaker

on you taskbar. Then select recording devices which will allow you to changes the settings for a microphone. If the speaker isn't on your taskbar you can go into Contro Panle under sound and get the the same place.
