Recently I purchased a Yankee Hornet Headset only to find that the microphone isn't working.
So, of course, I did a bit of googling and found out that it only works when plugged into the back of the PC, HOWEVER, when I plug the headphones into the back of the PC they do not work.
So now I have to choose between getting sound in or getting sound out.
I tried to plug the microphone in the back and the headphones in the front simultaneously, however, the ports are too far apart.
Is there any way that I haven't found to fix this?
PS: I did try to reinstall the drivers however that didn't fix the problem.
Edited by Administrator Cookiegal to add that the Operating System is Windows 7 as I moved this thread from that forum to the Hardware forum.
I also wanted to tell you of something that I found out while replugging the microphone.
If my desktop speakers are plugged in they will repeat the sounds the microphone makes even when the "Listen to Device" box is unchecked
No worries, I sometimes forget and misread/miss information.
So it sounds like the headphones work, but the ports do not.
As to the back ports for speakers, does one look like this:
If so, then the headphone should be in the other port (arrow pointing out... usually green) and then check the sound properties like you did for mic and see if it's showing enabled / sound going through. Also make sure that the sound icon has the right output:
Failing that... and the sound card, chipset, and BIOS is updated on the motherboard, I'd say the motherboard is the likely culprit
