    ((i have windows 10 pro)) I have a red dragon headset with separate jacks for mic and headphones. when i first got them ((august 17, 2018)) they worked fine, but then i went away for the weekend ((august 31, 2018)) and used an adapter in order to plug the headset into my laptop, it worked fine on the laptop.
    But then when i got back home and put the headset back into the pc is when the problem happened. it was working fine at first, and i was in a discord call with some friends, but then all of a sudden they said they heard a horrible screeching sound coming from me ((i cant hear it)) they said it was like they could hear themselves through my mic but scratchy and painful to listen to, and it turned out my system sounds were playing through my mic somehow? i did several things to try to fix it, but then it just turned into them hearing me but very low quality and muffled "like youre screaming at me from under water" i did more things to try to fix it and now my mic only works if i unplug the headphone part of the headset which is very inconvenient. sorry if i posted this in the wrong place but i know next to nothing about computers

    Have you tested the headset in another PC again to confirm it's still working properly?
