For the past two years, I have (accidentally) been using my laptop mic. I figured this out today, and tried to fix the problem on my own. The only issue is that my laptop is only picking up my internal mic, not the one on my headset. I am using a splitter with my headset because my laptop only has 1 audio jack, and I think this may be the issue. Please help!

you normally have to right click the volume icon in task bar & select recording devices, to switch from internal Microphone to an external one. It is pretty rare for windows to automatically switch except when using an USB headset where it sometimes automatically changes
