I recently bought a headset with microphone. the connectors are 2 x 3.5mm one for sound and one for microphone input. My PC is a Vista one with Creative Xfi Extreme Audio. When the microphone is plugged in (via the jacks on the front of the PC) I have right clicked the speaker icon in the system tray and selected recording devices, but the microphone is shown as "currently unavailable". I have tested the microphone in another Laptop and it works fine. I have tried configuring the microphone but nothing is heard. I can hear sound in the headset when i play music etc. I have also tried plugging the m/phone directly into the jack on the sound card but no joy. My thoughts are possibily sound card drivers?
Anyone suggest anything else please...... thanks in advance.
I really really hate messing with my audio drivers, but do you know what - it solved my problem. Thanks to all that replied especially crosstrainer whose link I used to get the updated drivers! Clicking resolved....
