    You've all been so helpful in the past so thought I would try posting again with a query... Just bought a Creative FATAL1TY Gaming Headset which is supposed to be plug and play but I cant seem to get the mic to work... I had problems getting the sound to come through but managed to do some twiddling around under control panel/sounds speech and audio settings and realised the default setting was for my VOIP phone that I have installed - switched this setting to the Nividia soundcard as default and the sound seemed to come through ok... the defualt setting for sound recording is the sound card but still cant get the microphone to work. I've trying using the headset against my skype account to test the mic and it just wont pick up anything... not sure if the mic is faulty or it's something I am doing? Any advice?

    Many Thanks,
