Headset microphone is not working

Tags:
Microphone
Help! My headset microphone is not working and other mics are also not. My computer can detect it from sound settings but my other programs are not detecting it. It is not a mic or motherboard issue. I have all my drivers updated and I have tried all other jacks. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    What OS is there? What other programs are not detecting your headset microphone? Is it worked erstwhile? Have you updated the OS recently?

    Try one more thing, If it is new and under warranty, you can ask to the vendor for more help. Also if possible, try the same headset microphone with another system. Or check if there is any pending update in Update History specially Audio related.

    Is the mike not working in all applications or just a few or not working for web browsers? What OS are you running? Do you see your or any microphone in the device manager settings?

    Your drivers might be fully updated, but that doesn't mean that they're working nor even that they're the correct drivers.

    Without knowing the OS, including the version, and possibly the platform, little more can be added with any certainty.
