I just recently bought HyperX Cloud Alphas I tried it on other devices and it works fine on them but not my laptop. The sound works but the inbuilt mic on my computer is the one that's being used instead of the one on my headset. My laptop is the Acer aspire s5-371t. Btw it doesn't pick up the headset.

Go to the lower right of the screen and right click the small speaker, click playback devices. Now click the tab above that says recording, then select the headset microphone, right click, and set as default device.
