    Headphone mic not registering

    I recently bought a gaming headset with a microphone.

    On the way back I used said headset with my phone and made a call, (Just verifying that it's not a hardware problem with the headset)
    When I attempted to use the headset with my laptop, nothing happened.

    The audio playing registered, and I could hear the computer audio but it was as if the microphone just wasn't there.

    My Laptop only has one headphone port, and the headphone icon has a little headset microphone attached to the side so I can only assume it's a hybrid port for a headset like this one.

    I have attempted going into sound setting, devices, control panel devices.

    None of them register the microphone.

    How to use Logitech H51 headphone as the default mic?

    Hi Michael,

    Your laptop's default mic is the currently enabled device, preventing you from using your headphone's mic. To use your headphone's mic, you need to enable it. To do so, kindly follow these steps:

    • On the Sound properties (the current open windows of the screenshot that you gave), go to Recordings.
    • Right-click your headphone's mic.
    • Click Enable.

    If you couldn't find your headphone's mic on the list, it must be hidden. To unhide it, right-click on your currently enabled mic and click
    Show Disabled Devices.

    Let us know how things go.

  3. headphone mic not working.

    Thank you for this reply I finally figured it out , the main problem is when we install the Conexant audio driver it overwrite the previous Realtek audio driver so the headphone mic not work. to fix this you must reinstall the Realtek audio driver download
    from it will work with any laptop device and any mic like headphone with inbuilt (eg. Microsoft Lumia 650 headphone).

    Please give other this soluction who have problem with headphone and mic and tell then to install Realtak audio driver.

    Again thank you for all your replies, I finally figured out the solution.
