Go to control panel>sounds and see if your devices are installed and recognized.
On taskbar, click on the little speaker icon, next to the clock, and go to mixer. See if any of the sliders are muted. Then go into sounds and check under recording and playback tabs. Test the devices there, under recording you should see a microphone and everytime you make a sound there should be a green vertical bar filling up to the right of the microphone.

Before start testing your Headset you must make sure the following are properly done:

1. Your Sound card is properly seated in the PCI slot and the Drivers installed as per the Manufacturer's instruction. If your Windows 7 installation is second OS or replacing another OS, in anotherwise normally working computer that had sound, the Sound card installtion may not be an issue; only driver installation is the problem. However, in some cases you may have to physically remove the Sound card from the PCI slot , Install the driver first and then shut down the PC, remove cables, insert the card in the PCI slot, verify it is seated well, recable the PC , Power On and reboot and follow the Found New Device Wizard to complete the driver installation if that is what the Card manufacturer has suggested for the particular make and model of your sound card [ Creative has many models of Sound Blaster Audigy and your SPEC does not indicate what you have].
2. Next Right click Computer>Properties >Device Manager to verify there are no error symbols anywhere and specifically scroll down to Sound Video and game controllers cluster and click and expand to make sure the Creative Soundblaster Audigy is listed and on Right-clicking that and clicking Properties check under Device Status to confirm "This device is working properly"
3. Next connect your Logitech Headset with 3.5 mm TRS connectors ( aka Audio jacks)[ if you have that type of Logitech headset] to the Sound ports of the sound card at the back of your Computer case. Since the Sound cards ports are usually color coded and hopefully your Logitech headset correspond to the same color coding ( in the plastic part or as colored rings at the base of the pins) choice of pin to the port may be easy. If there are no color coding, there could be Microphone and Headphone symbols on the plastic parts of the 3.5mm jacks. MIC goes to the RED or PINK port and the headphone or "speaker" jack goes to the GREEN or lemon green port. The blue or light blue port is for audio in put devices like sound board or audio mixer. If you have USB headset disreagrad the audo card after it is properly installed and look for a USB -2 port for the headset's USB connector and wait and watch the Notification area for detection and installation and "your USB device is ready for use" messages.
4. Test your headset using Control Panel >Hardware and sound>Sound> Recording tab. Select your Logitech Headset > Configure and start performing any or all of the tests you want from the Speech Recognition Experience window ; you may click Sounds tab and in the next popup, scroll down to Program events and click and select any wav sounds with a megaphone icon and click Test and listen .
