    Soundblaster card & microphone on headset not working


    The microphone on this non-brand headset isn't working due to the microphone not showing up under the recording devices. Audio is working for the headset (and anything else that I plug in ), but not the microphone. The green bars do not go up in the audio manager either when I test the microphone. I'd like to use this for teamspeak, but there doesn't seem to be anything that I have found on google to solve this so far, or anything that I've figured out on my end. I have attached a screenshot of what is happening in my audio manager. When any headphones/earphones are plugged into the green jack, they work and sound is audible, however in the audio manager it still says that no headset is plugged in even with them plugged in & working.

    - As well, I have a d945gtp motherboard

    - I also have an actual sound card in the motherboard ( a soundblaster live sb0060 ) currently doesn't work at all, and shows up in the device manager as 'multimedia audio controller' with a yellow exclamation mark. If I could get this working instead, that'd be much better too as an alternative fix.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks. =)

    hi, as for the sound blaster card I think you might as well remove that ,chance of getting win8 drivers for a win95/98 sound care are slim .

    plugged into the green port they are working as speakers .what happens when you plug them into the pink port

    edit , just google you board and it seems obvious this is not the computer in you system specs, so what are the specs of the computer you are trying to use and what os are you using.

    if you are using winxp you can check google to get driver for the soundblaster .
