    (I'm on a laptop)

    So I bought a new headset the sound plays through well, but that isn't my problem the thing is It's not detected so It's not in my recording devices.

    My laptop also has a build-in microphone (that doesn't show up in recording devices either).

    So I can't even disable my build-in microphone, or find my headset mic so how am I supposed to make it work..?

    Any solution? , Thank you for your time.

    So what you are saying is that when you open the Sound interface and select the Recording tab, the list is empty, there is nothing there at all, completely blank even though you have a built in microphone which you can see in Devices and Printers or in Device Manager.

    If this is a USB based headset/mike you should try the manufacturer's website to find the driver or software package available for your operating system.
