My husband got a new headset for his computer gaming and can't get the mic to work properly. I tested it on my computer and it works fine so it's not the headset. The plugs are all plugged in the right spots so it has to be a setting in his computer. He's got Windows XP.

I've been reading settings, etc. but don't really know much about this and am not finding any fixes (nor do I know what all of the settings mean). Any ideas for troubleshooting?

I had a similar problem with my new PC - the microphone jack wasn't connected properly. After some plugging ins of cables, it worked. Can you try the same socket with a different headset and see if the socket is the issue?

Thanks, Craig. His new headset isn't USB and everything else in the house is so I can't test it. I may have fixed it though. I messed around with his settings some more and the "test hardware" test is now recognizing my voice through the mike. He'll have to test it himself for sure when he gets home with playing BF2 over ventrillo because I don't do that.

BF2? Hmm, I wonder if I've run into him on some servers. Twisted Evil

A friend has a similar problem everytime he tries to play IL-2 Sturmovik online. For some reason his microphone audio properties keep resetting to mute. Damned annoying!

If it keeps playing up try this for XP

Start
All Programs
Accessories
Entertainment
Sound Recorder
Edit menu
Audio Properties
Sound Recording
Volume – Check to see if any of the setting are zero volume and change as necessary

Ima don't get mad. I have to ask. Is the mic setting on mute?

@Ghost Laughing No, it's not on mute. Laughing

This is actually sorted now, thanks for the help. It did work for him with BF2.
It was a setting in the computer. The mic wouldn't register at the right volume without "mic boost" checked off.

@OD: You may have played with or against him, he used to play a lot. I think he's a Lt. Colonel.
