I need help on this. I have two headset/microphones here, one is brand new. Both of them work as tested by my friend. One connects through USB, the other through the standard green and pink cables into the back of my computer. Both, when connected, give sound, but neither take voice input at all - they are simply not recognized as microphones.

I've tried EVERYTHING. Been Googling this problem for days now.

I'm running MS Windows XP SP3, and I have all the specs for my computer available upon request. Drivers are updated, I believe.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M55PLUS-S3G.

Please help me out here. I'm fairly proficient using a computer; I just can't figure this problem out.

Check your sound options in the Control panel and make sure that one of them is set to your default recording microphone and they are not set to be on mute.
