  1. Headphone microphone not working


    Hello guys! Here is some important preliminary info:

    • My headphones are Turtle Beach Elite gaming headphones (except mine are the wired version)
    • My computer is a Cyber Power PC desktop (I can't find what the exact model is but I know that it was from a few years ago and that it was around 1,000 dollars)

    The problem is that Windows 10 cannot detect my headset's mic which means that I can't switch to it. I've tried a few tutorials but none of them work because of this. That said my headset's output does work, it's just the input that doesn't.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Microphone not working

    Hi Angush,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the Microphone fails to work. I will be glad to help you.

    To diagnose the issue, I suggest you to try the following methods and check if the issue persists.

    Method 1:

    Step 1: Ensure the headphone or microphone is fully and firmly inserted into the correct jack.

    Step 2: Plug in the headphone or microphone and see if the same shows up in Control Panel.

    Please follow the instruction:

    a) Right-click on sound icon in the taskbar and select “Recording Devices”.

    See if the Microphone is listed.

    b) If not, right-click on the blank area and select “Show Disabled Devices”.

    c) Right-click on your microphone and select “Enable ”.

    Step 3: Check the volume property. Ensure that it’s not mute.

    Method 2:

    This may happen when you have the external speakers set to default.

    Perform the task mentioned below to set headphones as default:

    1. On the start screen of windows 10 press the ‘Windows key + X’
    key on the keyboard and then click on Control Panel >
    Sound option.

    2. In the new windows click on the tab "Playback" and right click in the window and click on
    Show Disabled devices.

    3. Now check if headphones are listed there and right click on it and choose
    Enable.


    4. Highlight that headphones and click on "Set as Default".

    Please post back with the status of the issue and we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
