Hey guys, I have a strange and irritating problem going on right now. I was using a creative soundblaster tactic3d sigma, when one day the microphone just went dead. I then tried my brother's creative fatal1ty headset and the mic for that also isn't working. However, if i plug in either of the detachable mics directly into the microphone port, they seem to work. I don't understand what the problem is, it seems like they just don't work when they go through a headset. The only thing i've noticed is that the connection to the mic port from the headset microphone plug and the detachable mic plug differs in sturdiness. The mic seems to connect a lot better, while the headset seems to spin around easily. I doubt this has anything to do with it though.
I have an asus n61jq-A1 laptop, any help would be greatly appreciated.
