    When inserting headphones, built in microphone is not working


    When I plugged in my headphones in my laptop, having the newly installed Windows 10, a question came up to select what type of device is this. By mistake, instead to clicking headphones, I clicked headset. From that point the microphone of my laptop did not work anymore, when the headphones are plugged in. Is there some way I can arrange this problem?

    Thanks a lot for the advice.

    I registered just to answer your question. Not sure if that popup is a win10 feature or a realtek feature. Only way I was able to fix this was by uninstalling and reinstalling the audio driver. It reset teh setting and allowed it to popup next time I plugged in my headphones/headset. There might be an easier way, but I am not aware of one. Hope this helps.

    Sorry it took long to answer. I had no access to the laptop for quite a while.

    Thanks
