Bought turtle beach z11 headset, cant get mic to work


The Z11 has a four-pole input/output plug to connect the mic and the earphone. The earphone needs to be connected to the earphone jack and the mic needs to be connected to the mic input jack on the back of the computer. In other words, you should have to 3.5 mm plugs. Plugging both into the same jack will disconnect one or the other. Check your adapter, It should have two separate 3.5mm plugs. If it does, be sure they are connected to the right jacks on the computer. The headphone jack will have a headphone symbol; the mic jack will have a microphone symbol. Go to System Preferences, Sound. Select the line in preference for input and the line out preference for headphones. Just may work.

After installing the HP H8000 Wireless Headset the notebook internal speakers are not working on my HP ENVY dv6


When connecting a headset or any other audio device to a laptops 3.5mm audio jack, it is designed to stop the internal speakers and run only from Headphones.

If you mean that even after disconnecting the Headphones the internal speakers are still not working, ensure that the headphone jack does not have anything lodged in it, any metal object can trick the laptop into thinking there are headphones connected, cutting the internal speakers out.

Try getting a DRY cotton bud, and clean out the port with that, this will get rid of anything that may be triggering the problem.

My headset is not working


Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hp compaq dc7600 front panel 3.5 mm jacks not working so no mic and headset and my os in win 7 x32


That can either be a software or hardware problem. Please check BIOS and Sound card drivers to see if the front Headphone and mic jack are enabled. (right click computer ->properties-> device manager) or start programs -> realtek (depending on sound card)

Was it ever working before and do the plug in the back work for your computer?

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7


Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

Awaiting.

How can I use the microphone on my headset? I have a Windows Vista and cant find the audio device.


Go to control panel and audio settings. Go to the voice tab and you can set the audio settings for your headset. If you have a sound card on the computer, the microphone jack is light pink and the sound jack is usually orange or green. Green is the color of the front channels and is usually shared with the headphones by using a splitter. The orange color of the headphone jack on some headphones is indicative of an aux. output such as the center back speakers of a 7.1 surround setup. If you have a USB set up, make sure to load the drivers and follow the prompts.

Computer Does Not Detect Headset Microphone


Sound and Recording jacks stop working on the DV6000 series due to the ribbon cable running under the power button. when the power button is pushed it bends the flex cable and over time it breaks the connection rendering the front jacks useless you can buy a new upper button panel for about 20 dollars on ebay

Hello. plug them into a stereo jack on a regular stereo. if it works, then at least you know they are working. Then you can plug them into the headphone jack on your computer. If they still do not work but worked on your stereo, then you have to find out why you are not getting audio output to your headphone jack on your computer On your computer, go to control panel, then to sound, then adjust system sound. make sure none of the mutes are checked at the bottom of any of the volume levels. you can also plug in a regular pair of headphones to the jack in back of your pc to make sure that you are getting sound. if not, then you have to enable the sounds to your pc jack in the sounds menu. hope this helps.
