Hi,
You just put the green one into the green hole, if there is one. It is the plug for the speakers/headphones. And the pink one goes into the red hole usually, that's for the microphone.
If you have sound coming from your computer at all, then the drivers necessary to use your headset are already installed.
If you are going to use Messenger or Skype, just go to the audio setting and try the different devices from the drop down list until you select the correct one. You'll know it's the correct one, because you'll see movement in the audio bar in settings.

Hope this helps!

    You don't need drivers.. your computer doesn't 'recognise' them because they aren't a 'device' and don't require a driver..
    They just require a suitable program with which they can be used, like Skype/Messenger/AIM etc
    Thought I'd better just add that..

    What's your computer? and operating system?
    You may need to unmute the mic and turn up something in Vome Control/Mixer etc..

    It's possible you are plugging into the onboard audio plugs instead of the sound card, or vice versa?

Skype not working


Sir,

Click this link for more information........

On a PC with external speakers and also a headset with microphone. Windows XP is configured so that standard audio are external speakers and standard microphone is the headset. Skype is configured to use the headset for audio in and out.

This way one can listen to sound from the PC and from MP3 players through external speakers and if there is a call to make or take, this is going through the headset.

But now there is the problem that the noise level for the headset is too low. Increasing volume has no effect on the headset, it only affects the external speaker's volume.

Now the solution: Going to the control panel and opening the sound setting, go to the audio tab. The external speakers are selected as default. Just temporarily select the headset and then click on volume just below. You can now set the volume for the headset, click OK and click cancel (!!!) on the sound control dialog box. This way the external speakers remain as default output.



Skype-->Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard(AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device


thanks
good luck

Do you have the latest drivers? If you're not sure, go http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/in/en/indhs1/Product/inspiron-15-intel-n5050 and install at least the audiodrivers.

If this doesn't work, go to control panel>hardware&sound>manage audio devices>recording, and see if your headset microphone is listed in there. Choose as default device if it is.

I just bought a Logitech Clearchat Stereo Headset and am running Windows XP. The mic is not recognizing while plugged into the front or back plugs. Is there something wrong with my soundcard?


You should go to your Device Manager in the "System" category of the Control panel and see if indeed the driver for your mic is present. It will be listed under "Sound, Video and Gaming devices."
