This problem is driving me crazy!

I have two Laptops and this happens on both of them! It also happens on my Razer headset and my Turtle Beach headset.

I've tried every solution out there:
-Unticking 'Listen to this device'
-Disabling Stereo Mix
-Uninstalling / Re-installing Realtek Sound Drivers
-Changing options in Realtek Audio Manager
-Using a USB sound card and 3.5mm splitters
-Adjusting microphone sensitivity and sound levels
-Making the devices used my default devices

The strangest thing also is that if I play a video, the sound will be detected on my microphone in Discord/Skype/Voice Recording Software.... however in the actual windows sound menu, under playback devices, the microphone DOES NOT detect audio played on the laptop but ONLY spoken!
Windows Sound Menu

Literally nothing I do will stop the sounds played on the laptop coming through the microphone. can anybody help!?
