do you have the 991a audio drivers installed?. I may have missed that answer.   You  should be selecting the audio codec, and I think someone mentioned, give permission to allow wsjt to use the microphone

make sure you had restarted the PC before trying to restart the wsjt/jtalert, or whatever you are trying to use.

OK, after fighting this for days, I finally grabbed a ferrite and wrapped my USB cable (never had an issue with this cable with previous setups) just in case this was an RFI issue:


Absolutely no effect whatsoever.  Continual sound input error dialogs. The Microphone privacy switch is not an issue as I posted earlier.

So, I set up an elderly Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7, hooked it up with the same cable same driver, same software, same place in the shack, and it's been running for 7 hours w/o a hitch.

The computer is a brand-new Asus VivoBook 17 K712EA, and I never dreamed that I would have any issues with it. I've got a limited amount of time to return it.  I'd really appreciate feedback.
