Windows 10: Need help with microphone Solved

    Need help with microphone


    I recently got a new desktop computer. Before I used a laptop.
    The computer is really great and works well but I have an issue with the microphone.

    As there is two entries, one for the headset and one for the mic, and I have a headset with a mic on it I can't really make both work at the same time.

    And weirdly, if I plug the headset on the mic entrie, the mic itself doesn't work but instead I can talk through the headpiece itself. So basically I can convert my headpiece to a mic but the mic itself doesn't work.

    How do I do to make the mic and the headset work together ?

    At the very least I have an earplug with mic that I used before. But I have the same problem when I plug it into the mic part it doesn't do anything....

    Any one got some advice on how to fix this ?
