    Hi

    Sorry if this has been posted before but some searching hasn't
    revealed any results

    I have just bought a headset with microphone for use with skype.
    I also have a usb webcam with a microphone, but the microphone isn't
    as good as the headsets.
    When I have the webcam plugged in the headsets microphone doesn't
    work, I guess the webcam's takes priority. Fine.
    When I remove the webcam (which will be the norm) the headset
    microphone doesn't then work. I have to restart the machine before it
    does.

    I've tried control panel->sounds and audio devices->voice->voice
    recording and I can see that there are 2 options when the webcam is
    plugged in but only one when not. Nothing I do here seems to help
    Suggestions?

    thanks for any help
