    have you check that your device is showing up in

    control panel>>sound>>recording

    if your device is working it will show up there

    Hello, thanks for the welcome

    It is an on-board sound card.
    The headsets were not USB. they had audio jacks. I im plugging them in from the jacks in front of the computer.

    Yes, i tried it on another computer

    Bought yet another headset today, this time a USB one, god help me!

    Welcome to TechIMO!

    Can't say I have ever heard of a sound card destroying a mic, but anything is possible.

    Is this on-board, or a dedicated sound card?
    If dedicated what brand model?
    Is this USB, or are you plugging into the sound card?

    I assume, you tested them in another computer.

    Weird problem/headset related

    Hello techimo people!
    I have the weirdest problem regarding my headset(s).

    I've bought some razer headset for about 70 Euro, after a month, my mic wont work. My friends/family cant hear me on skype etc etc. Im just thinking, its ok, must be a problematic headset.

    Getting a new one the next day (non-razer).
    after a month, mic burned out again. This cant be a coincidence.. Here i im again, buying a new cheap headset (10euro). This one lasted for more than a month, but its broken again. dunno what to do, is it a sound card problem? is it my bad luck and all of the headsets are braking? I think there is a problem with something else other than my headset.
