On my windows xp pc when i plug my new fatality headset into the audio and mic jacks in the front of the pc the computer does not register the input. The audio works fine and I can use them as a traditional headset but I'm having trouble using the microphone since if I go to the audio settings in the control panel its as if it hasn't been put in at all...
Please help!
thankyou all in advance :)

No, the microphone switch on the hardware is on as well as the volume in the settings. However when i go into 'sounds speech and audio settings' under sound recording device the only option I have is 'sigmatel Audio'

Ok so there has been a new development, now my mic works... but not as you would expect. The computer doesnt recognise its existence still, however I can talk into the mic and it will play it through the speakers for whatever reason. Please Help!!
