    Headset Microphone Help
    I am at the end of my wits. I've troubleshooted with various sites regarding my issue, but I still can't find a fix. The headset works fine on my other computer, so the headset itself is not at fault.

    I have Windows Vista operating system.
    I have a microphone-headset combination, with two separate lines (one for mic-the other for the headset).
    They are both plugged into their respective correct ports.
    The headset works fine, but the system doesn't detect the microphone at all.

    I have tried downloading a new driver as one site suggested, and it still doesn't work.
    I've rebooted several times. That doesn't wotk.
    I've tried using other microphones. Still nothing.

    Everything on my computer is up to date, including my sound card and driver.

    On top of that when I click the speaker icon to access that menu, I go to recording and 'NO AUDIO DEVICES INSTALLED' appears.

    I have accessed my device manager to allow it to scan for updates for the "High Definition Audio Device" that is listed in the file for 'Sounds, video and game controllers'.
    The response after the scan was "The best driver software for your device is already installed. The driver software is up to date"

    But the microphone is still not working, and it is not being detected. The system still shows "No Audio Devices Installed"

    Please help me.
