  1. Microphone - Help


    So recently, My PC got updated like 2 weeks ago.

    Before this, I had a headset that would pretty much be dominant when it came to producing sound. It was amazing, the microphone audio AND The sound I got back.

    Recently, however.... Ever since this update, my headset would give me back audio, but for some reason it would use my Computer's Microphone.
    Now I've never had this happen, but since then I have been trying EVERYTHING to fix it, including buying a new mic just to make sure it wasn't the wire, and the Mic worked on all of my other devices (PS4, Phone) BUT NOT MY PC?
    I looked it up, and it gave me this "Add a Mic" stuff, but even then, Its stating there's no headset connected. My Wires are perfectly fine, And I can get audio back. Why is my mic using the PC Mic, and not the headset mic?
    This never happened until the update, live support pretty much didn't work, and I'm struggling. Please, somebody help me.
    (This really has stressed me out. I just want to talk to my friends without having to use the PC Mic)

    :)
