If you unplugged the computer to move it to a new location then try a powercycle with the headset removed. Remove the power cord and hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the power cord and boot. If a laptop also remove the battery before holding the power button down if the battery is easily accessible.

 

Another thing to check. Right click your speaker with the headset attached. Select Recording devices. Make sure you have a green check mark on the recording device.If not right click and select default device.

 

Is this a USB headset?

Are there any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? Was a driver install required for the headset?

What is the OS on this computer?

 

Do you have a restore point before the problem occurred? Any programs installed after the restore point would need to be reinstalled. If XP make sure you move any or files placed on the desktop after the restore point is moved to My Documents.

 

May help.
