Headphone's microphone is not working on PC

Hello, as title is saying, my microphone in headset is not working on PC. But is working on laptop without any issue. Tried everything i found on internet, nothing seems to work for me. (Headset's reproductors working well, just microphone not). WIN10 on both laptop and PC

In short I tried this:

  1. Check updates in device manager = audio input and output + sound, video and game controller (NVIDIA High Definition Audio, Realtek High Definition Audio and USB device - headset) = all seems to be up to date, since nothing pop up.

  2. Tried all USB ports in PC or Keyboard device

  3. Tried troubleshooting, nothing.

  4. Tried to dig in audio settings (recording), microphone device is there and set as default, but that bar near it is just grey, not green as it should be.

  5. Tried different communication apps, just to make sure its not hardware/win issue - teamspeak, discord, skype. Nothing working (on PC)

I am out of ideas and can't find anything else i tried out there, so I am asking here on the forum and hopefuly someone will have solution for me. Thanks a lot!

Laptop probably has a Combined Headphone/Mic Socket. PC probably has separate sockets
