I have one of those Logitech headsets for gaming, and I can't seem to get the mic to work on it. The sound works on the headphones, but the microphone will not pick anything up.

Has anyone had any luck using a microphone? I don't think my built in mic even works.

First of all, I assume it is the kind with two plug-ins, not the wireless kind. In the control panel, do you have the sound input set to external mic. instead of built-in mic.? I have made that mistake before...
