It's a headset combo, I just reformatted, and now it doesn't work. The speakers in the headset however, do work.

I don't think it came with any drivers, and I'm not finding anything on Logitechs page.

Here is the headset if it helps:

Do you have it plugged into the right port??

Should look something like this

Are you using Windows XP? If so go into your control panel then go to (if it is not set to classic mode set it to that)
Then go to "Sounds and Audio Devices" On the first Tab you will see "Device Volume" and then click on "Advaced"

When that is open you will be able to see if the Mic has been muted (which I think is the problem) If you do not see Mic as an option.. go into "Options" then "Properties" and click on the box for the Mic.


Not the problem?

Go back to "Sounds and Audio Devices" in the control panel... then click on the "Voice" Tab

Is there a device to choose from in "Vocie Recording" if not you will need to most likey re/install you sound card driver.
If it is there click on "Test Hardware" this will run a simple walkthrough diagnostic program and might give you and indication of what the problem might be.


Let me know if none of that help and we can try some other stuff!
