My Windows 8 laptop has a mic built in, which always worked fine. I also have a mic I can plug in which always automatically worked when plugged in.
However, a few days ago I plugged it in and nothing happened. It still works on my desktop. I haven't changed any settings.
I bought a headset. This works fine on my desktop, but not on my laptop. I have sound through the headphones, but the mic isn't working.
When I look at the audio devices it doesn't show, although I'm not sure it used to show the other mic either. I've clicked to unhide other devices, still doesn't show. I tried going to add a device but it doesn't find anything.
I tried troubleshooting, but it finds no issues.
For some reason the built in mic did stop working but that is now working again. I didn't change anything. However, the headset mic still isn't doing anything.
What can I do to get the headset mic working?
