  1. Laptop using in built mic instead of headset


    So I tried fixing my mic to use primarily on discord, but I realized that the mic is inputting from the built in mic instead of the headset I had plugged in.

    I tried to unplug and plug in, restarting my laptop and turning on and off privacy settings.

    On top of this the only input devices I ever see on discord, sound settings and control panel is the Realtek audio.

  2. Laptop is using a built in mic instead of my headset

    so my Laptop is using my built-in mic instead of my headset (Rig 500 if that helps) And my laptop mic is half broken so sometime it will sound like beeps and hoops and others it will go silent and sometimes it will be normal, if i could get any help that
    would be great

    Laptop won't detect built-in mic on headsets/earbuds

    I'm running Windows 10 home on a Lenovo Ideapad laptop, and it doesn't detect the mic on any of my headsets/earbuds. I can hear playback fine on my headsets/earbuds, but it can't speak through them, since it insists on using the laptop's internal mic. This results in my typing/mouse clicks all being captured on audio.

    • In sound properties recording tab, I just see "microphone (Realtek high def audio)" and "stereo mix (Realtek high def audio)"
    • In sound properties playback tab, I just see "speakers (Realtek high def audio)", yet I hear audio fine on my headsets/earbuds?
    • In device manager, it doesn't detect a headset either, displays the same list as the recording tab
    So do all 3 of my headsets/earbuds have some kind of "plug and play but stays invisible to the OS" feature? One of them is the default Apple earbuds, I'm 100% sure there's a mic on there and these are brand new, so they aren't broken. Are these not supposed to appear as a "headset" device with the headset icon in sound properties?

    Laptop won't detect built-in mic on headsets/earbuds

    Hi,

    You may mute Mic: right-click on taskbar speaker/Sounds/Recording tab-->Mic properties/Levels-->mute.

    Your laptop should have two mini-jacks, usually in front. One for mic (line-input) and the other for earphones (line-output) or external speakers.
    You have to use a splitter cable which splits your 1 mini-jack headset cable into 2 mini-jack cables.
    One for mic and the other for earphones:
