The headset works fine, and the mic I know for a fact works.. just not on my computer.

Someone please tell me some ways to fix this? :tazz:

I have done everything to my knowledge to fix it, but no luck. Would be great if we got it working ASAP, I play CS competitively and need a working mic desperately.

Its not muted in any way, on mic, or Master Volume..PLEASE ;) !!!

Hi

Could you give the model of the headset, the hardware in your configuration?.

Did you go to volume control and activate it the microphone?

Hi again

First off, in your system tray (right hand side of the screen down at the bottom), did you try double clicking on the speaker icon, click options, properties, put a checkmark in the microphone and click OK.

Then you will see the microphone in the panel and if the check mark is on "mute" you might have the reason right there.

If this doesn't work you could try double checking if you connected the jacks to the right ports on your computer.

If not can you give the model and brand of your sound device?

1. If you right click on "my computer", choose properties, click on the panel hardware, click on "devoce manager.

In there you will find a "speaker icon" with a plus to the left of it, click the plus and there you will find your sound device

OR...

Go to control Panel, click on "sounds and multimedia" se;ect the hardware fane.

Okay, first step.
(and sorry, i know you have done all this but gotta take it all from the beginning).

Make sure that the jacks are plugged into the right connections in you sounds card, -microphone in microphone (usually marked with pink)- and Sound in sound (usually marked with light green).

1. Make sure that the microphone is turned on
in the "volume" control panel and that the volume for the mic is turned up.

2. On the control in the cord to the headset, make sure it is turned on there as well.

3. turn volume up on the cord control

4. not too loud on any as you might get your ears damaged :tazz:

5. go to control panel and double click on the "sound and media" again

6. choose audio, what doies it say under recording device?

What i would suggest you do is the follwing.

Reinstall your drivers for the soundcard, make sure you remove the one installed prioir to the reinstall.

it'll take a few minutes and i'll wait for your reply to this.

Then go back in and see if there is now a recording device present
