mic not working on my headset (headset audio is fine)

hello all, my microphone on my headset is not working. it is not recognized in teamspeak or Skype, and right now it is a useless.

when i go to Control Panel<Sound<Recording it does not recognize my mic is plugged in there either. i have tried plugging it into the front and back of the computer and have somewhat halfheartedly tinkered with the settings in TS and Skype. i don't really know what else to try, and Google is not giving me any results. Realtek audio player also does not recognize the mic.

(by the way, its the kind of mic with the pink and green jacks)

thanks in advance.

  1. The pink one os for the microphone, the green jack is for the audio out, the blue one is for line in.
    You should be getting a dialog utility whenever you connect the cable to a jack, use the auto-sensing feature to setup your mic/earphone.
    The auto-dialog refers to your audio codec, most likely AC97 Realtek but depends on the motherboard.

    what is the line in jack for? and i don't know what the auto-sensing feature or auto-dialog is
  3. Auto-sensing occurs when you plug in the cables to the jacks, a dalog will pop up giving you options to the jack ports.
    You need to install the audio drivers and utility for it to work, though.
    Check the manufacturer web site for your motherboard make and model to acquire a download of the audio feature.
