    TekNMotion Yapster Blaster PC Mic not functioning


    Hello. I have a TekNMotion Yapster Blaster XBOX360/PC headset that I use for my PC, but the mic does not seem to work for my PC. I have tried plugging it in the front jack and the back jack (I have a desktop PC) and I have tried to set it up again via "Set up a Microphone". In Sound>Recording my microphone icon has an empty bar next to it. Under the "Levels" tab in "Microphone Properties" I have "Microphone" set to 100 and "Microphone Boost" set to +10 dB. I am running a Windows 8 PC. This is the empty bar that I was talking about next to my Microphone's icon:

    Do you have proper Realtek drivers installed ? Last version is 2.73.

    Does the plug on the mic have a "TRRS" plug rather than a "TRS" type plug that is required by the PC?

    Here is a picture of a TRRS type plug

    And, here is a picture of the standard 3.5mm TRS plug required by the PC

    Wow, looks like I don't have the latest version installed, but when I try to update my audio devices in device manager, it says there are no updates.

    Driver updates from Windows control panel look at MS driver base only. Here, download original Realtek drivers from here: Realtek
    Now comes bad news, if there's only one TRS plug, and not 2 separate ones, one for mic and another for earphones, than it will not be possible to have both things working, I don't know how Xbox does it but with PC you need separate plugs.

    I tried to download the Realtek driver, but I was told "No devices supported in this package". Also, The headset does have two separate plugs.
