    I can't use the mic on the headset because I chose headphones and never ask again


    I can't use the mic on the headset because I chose headphones and never ask again. I saw other people's posts and the answers never worked. I tried to make the headset the default in the sound control panel but it wont show up even if I chose "Show disabled devices" or "show disconnected devices" can someone please help?

    :)

  2. Mic and Headset

    Ok so basically, I have a gaming headset with a mic, I plugged it in via audio jack of my windows 10 computer. At the beginning each time I plugged in my headset my computer would ask me what I plugged in (Headphones, Mic, ETC). So I set it to headphones
    and clicked: Don't ask me again. But now I want to use my headset AND my mic and since it doesn't ask me I can only use my headphones. What should I do o' great powerful one?

    Laptop not splitting headset mic & audio?

    Hi
    Simple version. When i plug in my headset to my laptop windows10 is not splitting it into one output and one input.

    I fixed this years back by setting the popup box 'whats plugged in' from headphone to headset. Then it split the audio and mic. However i had to reinstall windows and now when i select headset it just mutes my laptop mic and audio manager just shows the one mic, but two audio outputs.

    It was working before the reset and i have tested the headset on another computer and it is working find.
    So far i tried device manage audio driver install, for both Realtek driver and High Definition driver but either resolve the issue.

    Any suggestions why windows would pick up one and not the other?

    I currently have it set to headphone plugged in so that i can use my laptop mic, but ive been told i sound really bad *Sad

    Cheers,
    Zola

    I can't use the mic on the headset because I chose headphones and never ask again

    How do I enable my bluetooth headset mic?

    I have a Bluetooth headset with mic which works with my phone, and my other computer. When I connect to Windows 10 the speakers (headphones) work but the mic does not. The headset is paired with Bluetooth (headphones work). The device is listed under recording
    devices, enabled and is the default headphone and default headset. My other mic is disabled. The headset has the green tick under recording devices but the green sound levels only moves once on opening the panel, but does not move up and down when I talk.
    The mic is listed in other applications (eg Skype) but is not working. I have stopped and started Bluetooth devices and updated windows to ensure everything is up-to-date.

    As it works with other computers it seems like a windows problem and I have exhausted every available avenue.

    Any ideas?

    thanks
