    Trying to set up a mic with my laptop


    I've been trying to get a pair of earbuds with a built-in microphone to work on my Windows 10 ASUS laptop. I've gone through countless fix-its and troubleshooting but nothing seems to work.


    When I plug my headphones in, the usual audio device pop-up appears but my headphones do not show as an option to click on for an input device. So I went to the Sound manager in settings, where they give you the options between playback and recording to see if I could enable it for recording. The headphones don't even show as an option in playback but they work perfectly fine for me to hear videos and things.


    I've gone to the device manager in case it was a driver problem and the driver that most people suggest: The Realtek HD or whatever it's called, and my laptop only has the regular RealtekR and there's no other options.


    As far as I'm aware, I've never been able to successfully use a mic with my laptop. It's around a year old. I've never had any need to use a microphone with my laptop before but I now have classes online and would like a reliable microphone so I can be heard in my classes.


    Any help or advice would be appreciated. I really need to get this sorted out for class. Thanks!

    :)

    USB Mic Problems.

    The next step is what I suggested originally. Try it in a friend's PC or take it to Best Buy and ask them to try it one of their PC's. Have to confirm the mic is working OK.

    Headphone mic not working with laptop 3.5mm port

    I have sennheiser hd4.40 wireless headphone. I also got a cable with headphone having 2.5mm pin(attached to headphone) to 3.5mm pin(attached to mobile phone).

    Problem is that when i connect 3.5mm pin to my mobile phone headphone jack, in call i am able to use mic and headphone both at same time but:

    1. When i connect the 3.5mm pin to 3.5mm jack for mic on my laptop, i am not able to use the mic.(my laptop has separate 3.5mm mic and 3.5mm headphone jack)
    2. When i connect to 3.5mm jack for headphone, only headphone is working with laptop not mic.

    Please do not suggest why I am not using Bluetooth because it is a separate problem.

    I am missing something or maybe this may be limitation or something else. Help me on this. :-(

    Suddenly my system won't use a mic

    One important step, try your mic with a different computer.
