hello, when i plug my headphones into the computer, it doesnt work and isnt even recognized. My computer keeps saying "mic in at front panel (unplugged)" I've tried everything, updating driver ect ect ect. so i just want to know if theres something i can buy that will be a quick fix. like a usb adapter for my headphones or something. I have Windows 10 thanks

Do the headphones have a built-in microphone?

Are you plugging them into the Headphone or Microphone jack?

They do and I'm plugging them into the headphone jack. None of my other headphones work either on my computer

I ran across one like that a few years back. Come to find out the very tip of a set of headphones has broken off all the way down in the bottom of the headphone jack. I had to remove the motherboard, desolder and remove the headphone jack before I discovered that tip down in the bottom of the jack. Actually ended up having to peel back the metal enclosure a bit before I was able to wedge that tip out of there. It worked! Owner was ecstatic. :)

I am not saying that is what's wrong in your case. It's just something that can happen.
