    Microphone works with mic in option but not with headset option


    My mic suddenly stopped working yesterday. I've tried all the normal steps like setting my microphone as the default device, trying other headsets, restarting my pc, updating my drivers, etc. but I can't get it to work. I have noticed that although my mic does not work whenever I use the headset option I can hear, but not speak, if I try using the mic in option, my microphone does work, although it comes out very quietly. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    :)
     

  2. [Problem] No mic boost option?

    I have Logitec G35 I use, it only connects via USB. The drivers for it allows a microphone level adjustment, but my sound options in Windows 7 does not have a microphone boost option as I did back under Vista. If you connect the mic through the jack, you plugging it into the MB or do you have a jack connection on the case? Your first pic for the GameCon 780 doesn't look like it's actually being used as the mic.

    Make sure your audio/mic levels are up in the program you're using to chat. I mainly use teamspeak, you can adjust the Capture level of your mic in there to make it more or less sensitive. The few games I play co-op over Steam, sometimes I have to make sure any in game setting for the mic/chat audio is turned up as well.

    As odd as it sounds, my last headset had USB and cabling for 3.5mm for the mic/audio (don't remember the make/model of it). I found that the mic wouldn't work correctly if both the USB and 3.5mm were plugged in at the same time. I could either plug in the audio & mic via the sound on the MB or I could use just the USB.

    Headset Microphone not working.

    So I already have that on and I tried it without it on and the same thing happened, I also have the Dell Audio program that lets me customize my microphone and speaker/headphones. Also, I tried starting up (jack information) with Headset and Headset with
    Microphone, the Headset option uses my laptop mic no matter what, and the headset with mic option is blank no noise.

  4. Microphone works with mic in option but not with headset option

    Headset Mic Not Working

    I really need some help.

    I have a Cloud Stinger HyperX headset.

    So the Microphone was working fine for many months then a few weeks ago it just stopped.

    It does not show up on my list of Recording Devices anymore.

    The only Mic I have is the one built in the computer.

    I have tried multiple solutions and nothing works. Any suggestions?
