Mic is not recognized

My computer doesn't seem to recognize my GE98980 headset mic.  The headphones work fine, but the mic doesn't.  WHen I got to the control panel options, it is not listed as a mic option to choose.  When I do a hardware test unders sound and audio devices/ voice, it doesn't hear anything.  How do I get this to work?

Thanks.

Just had the same problem occur on a laptop with same mic. Did the exact same thing yours did, I turned the mic boost on and ran the hardware test three or four times and it finally picked it up. Hope this helps.

Go to your control panel (vista users) and find the Speech Recognition Option, it wil have you recite a sentence and after that it sound configure your mic to your computer. I was having this same issue for about a week untill i decided to figure out wth was going on. I did this this morning now both my headphones and my mic work. I hope this helps :D

I have a back beat 903 blue tooth headphone i have problem connect with my laptop two day before working fine now when try to connect error


It almost sounds like the computer is not recognizing the Bluetooth device. Try deleting it then reset for the bluetooth again. Also check your control panel on you pc to see if it is set up as usable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

I have 2 plugs on my Logitech ClearChat Stereo Headset Headset I have a table top computer where do I pug them


The headphone plug goes into the green jack on the computer. The mic plug goes into the red jack on the computer. The headphone plug with have three segments on the jack, the mic plug will have two, and they'll both be marked. If you're computer doesn't have color jacks, the mic will go into the one with a picture of a mic, the headphones will go into the one with a picture of a headphone or speaker.

Hi,

Don't think its the drivers, because you can hear audio.

Do you have your mic with your headset or separatedly? If with headset, maybe your headset has a physical switch where you can enable/disable mic (seen this feature on some Locitech headsets).

You can also check whether you have Mic muted in your audio control panel. Go to Control Panel, open Sounds and Devices and File - Properties if I remember correctly (sorry, I have Vista now) and put a check before Mic property to bring out the Mic volume level bar to see whether it's muted or not.

Hope this helps,
Tom

My microphone will not work, and my computer won't recognize!


Common problem with this headset.

In short, the wiring for the mic in the left earpiece is quite shoddy, and over time will be worn away by changing the mic position or come loose with minimal effort.

Have had a over a dozen of these fail in our internet cafe due to this issue after a couple of months use.

My headphones work, my mic does not(at all)


Have you gone to your control panel, and found the "speech recognition" option? If you havent tried it, do that. It wil have you recite a sentence and then should conifgure your mic to your computer. I hope this helps!

Headset isn't recognized by computer and audio doesn't go through headset


With the infamous Vista, try:
Start --> Control panel --> Hardware and sound --> Sound --> Audio devices admin [I have a Spanish OS, I hope it is the same in the English version], then assign as default device the headset.

With Skype and other sw, you have to specifically pick the lx-3000 as the device that will be used as audio device (and the same has to be done to use the mic).

Pretty cumbersome....

You use headsets to have conversations over the internet .. or to have a personalised audio equipment,.
You should have used the mic to start with, as you heard over the speaker your voice,

There are two pins. One for MIc and other for the headphones.
Use mic only when recording. other times keep it muted in control panel-> sound and audio...

you can use headphone for hearing when you don want the audio stream to be on speakers., TO use so, you have to take of the output from the CPU to the headphone pin after removing the speaker pin or configuring the audio controls control panel-> sound effect manager to have sound always in both theh speakers and headphones.

This requires you to have an appropriate configuration so that all 3 pins are aptly placed fot output from the CPU.
Hope you got what you asked for!
