Solved Using hdmi output on graphics card (hd 7870) Tags: Headsets Graphics Cards HDMI Graphics Last response: January 28, 2014 9:59 AM in Graphics & Displays Share joho5 January 28, 2014 8:59:37 AM Does this disable being able to use a headset? I cannot get my pc to recognize my mic or headset at all. The usb powers it up (turtle beach x12), but no response, cant find the mic to enable in device manager, etc... Is this because I am using an hdmi cable and its overriding the sound part of it?
