Headset will not work

  1. Ok, I've been going crazy trying to get this thing to work for hours. I've searched all over the internet for a solution and I can't seem to find one that works.

    Here's the deal:
    I am running windows 7 rc 64-bit os.
    I have a basic stereo headset mic, with two 3.5" jacks at the end. One green (audio) and one pink (mic).

    I plug them into the corresponding jacks on my i/o panel and the audio works fine. Detects it as speakers. However the mic does not show up at all. The recording devices is blank and it will not recognize that I have plugged it in. I don't think this is a driver issue because they are just 3.5" jack plug-ins.

    Any insight?

    Hi.

    Oftenly, the mic on the headset doesn't work:dead:, it's just for show off!:cool:!

    It happens with cheap stuff, typically produced by asian countries.

    The basics will work, like the audio but forget about the mic. Its a con.
