I recently bought a new headset. It's not USB, it's got two separate plugs for the mic and headphones. Previously i'd been using a logitech USB headset, and it was working fine. I know the jacks in the sound card work, because i've been running my speakers through there, and have used a mic with a 1/8" plug before.
Now i plug this new headset in, and the headphones part works, but the mic doesn't. I unplugged the USB microphone, still nothing. I went into control panel > sound stuff and made sure my realtek (sound card) was selected as the device, and still nothing. Even sat through the voice configuration thingy, without a peep. I remember I had to wrestle with XP quite a bit before I could get it to accept voice in from the USB device and output to the normal line out. Now I can't remember what all I changed.
For some reason it's not working with the mic at all, but the headphones work perfectly. What should be my next step?
*EDIT* I plugged the headset into a different computer running windows XP, and it worked perfectly all the way 'round. So i know it's something I gotta screw with in windows XP. Any help? i've already made sure the mic is selected under the recording volume controls. Made sure it's muted in playback. Nothing.
