Hi Jusazn, welcome to Geeks to Go!

I'm assuming that the laptop is a different computer, so you have found out that the headset does work, just not on your computer. Right?

Open your Start menu > Control Panel (or Settings > Control Panel) > Sounds and Audio Devices. Under the "Device Volume" heading, click the "Advanced" button. Make sure the microphone mute button is unchecked and slide the volume up.

If it does seem to be working, but sounds really quiet, try this - on the Options menu bar, make sure "Advanced Controls" has a tick next to it. Select the Advanced button under Microphone, and tick the "Mic Boost" button.

If none of this works, from the desktop, right-click "My Computer" and select Manage. Click on the Device Manager, and let me know if your computer has any question marks or exclamation marks next to an item (in particular, audio devices).

Cheers :whistling:

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling your audio drivers?

If you open "Sound Effect Manager" in the control panel, does it properly identify you have a microphone in the correct port under the "Connector Sensing" tab?

That's weird, usually the Realtek AC'97 install will add this to your control panel. Can you please post your soundcard make and model (or motherboard if you have onboard audio)?

Okay, can you confirm you have updated to the latest audio drivers on this link:

http://www.asrock.co...p?Model=775i65G

The release date is 20th April, 2005. It also says you have the C-Media AC'97, not the Realtek. I have had issues with C-Media onboard audio before that I was unable to resolve, so I just added a quality-brand sound card to fix it.
