Will not recognize mic or speaker

Audacity will not recognize my mic or speaker. Nothing shows up under devices under preferences. I deleted and reinstalled and I’ve tried my headset mic and my webcam mic and my speakers. Still nothing shows up. Any help is appreciated.

It would be handy to know your Audacity version and the brand and type of the mic and the speaker, especially if these are USB devices.

Please see the answer to your other post, which is the same question: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/error-internal-portaudio-error/41357/1
