  1. Yes, its plugged into the right jack.

    Ok so, if I talk nothing is coming out. But if I play music or something on youtube it starts playing like im talking. And it uses the music as the voice? WHAT THE F*** is it my fault? with the wiring or? This is making me pull my hair out!!! Please help. If you need more details ask please!!

    Recapitulation (please confirm correctness):
    - mic does not record when you talk
    - mic plays sound when a recording is played
    - mic is plugged into correct input port (pink)

    Open questions:
    Is input port correctly wired to motherboard (or) sound card?
    Does recording/playback software correctly identify output/input ports?

    - reconfirm mic plugged in correct input port (pink)
    - connect mic to another computer to confirm proper operation of mic

    If mic operates properly on known good system, then either wiring or software issue with your system; else, mic is bad.

    Easiest is software - remove audio software and audio drivers; download fresh, reinstall with fresh download
    (this is likely cause, especially if you have geeky friends who play practical jokes).

    If good mic using fresh install of software still has problem, contact audio hardware manufacturer for support.

    Let us know how it goes.
