    Windows 8 won't recognize mic on ASUS laptop


    My laptop doesn't recognize the mic on my Merkury headset. I can listen to audio just fine but it doesn't recognize that it is also a mic. There is only one place to insert the headset and it is made for both microphones and earbuds (Trust me I checked.) I have made the Audio Manager show disabled devices and it still doesn't show up. This is very frustrating because I have only had my laptop for two months and this headset is brand new.

    What is the specific model of the Laptop? Also what is the exact make/model of your headset/mic unit?

    We can't really help you without that.
