    Microphone troubles on brand new pc


    I'm having problems with my mic, when I plug my headphones into the front panel headset jack, it detects my headphones and plays audio correctly but it doesn't have a microphone despite there being one in my headset, and I checked the recording tab in the sounds menu.


    Edit: The cable is a single cable and the jack and cable are 3.5mm

    :)

    • What is the Windows 10 version and Build installed? (Type
