Hey, my mic suddenly stopped working on my headset but the headphones worked fine. I tried it on a laptop and I got the same result. So I bought a new headset and it was the same for it also, the mic wouldnt work but the headphones do and it was the same on the laptop.

I broke my front mic slot like 2 years ago after my headset fell to the ground so I was using the slot round the back. I was praying it wasn't the back slot was now broken too, which I think it might be. Is there any way to fix it? But then I don't understand why neither mics would work on my other laptops, as it's unlikely both their mic slots were broken too?
Thanks

I think my original headset has just broke and the new one I bought came with a fault mic? I just used it on my old PC, and again the mic didnt work but the headphones did. I am going to head to a computer shop tomorrow and ask them to test it on their PC and then decide from then.

So the PC shop indeed confirmed both mics were broken, so now I will send back the headset which I bought and ebuyer will replace it. However it will take some time which is annoying.

Is it possible that a sound card could break microphones?
