    Hello. I have a laptop that has both headphone and microphone jacks. When I plug in headset into the headphone jack, the laptop uses it's own inbuilt microphone instead of the headsets microphone. I have tried reinstalling drivers and other headsets nothing works. How can I fix the issue. The laptop is msi gt62vr 6re dominator pro.

    You need a headset that has independent mic/sound jacks. Or get a splitter. Personally, I prefer to use a USB headset.

    I think it is a software issue because my laptop isn't that old and it has golden audio jacks. But I don't know how to fix it.

    This is your problem.......your laptop it has both ports. It's not software. You need a headset that has both the sound/mic jacks.

    What's the make/model of your headset you're using?
