My computer has two jacks, one for microphone and one for headphones. I have a headset with a detachable gaming mic and the headset only has one cord. Now I bought a splitter thinking that would work and I would be able to use the microphone after that. Now since I'm a total dunce when it comes to computers and tech, I need help. The splitter's microphone end wont pick up my headset's microphone. It may just be that the splitter is cheap (because I'm mostly broke all the time) but at the slight chance it might not be the splitter I need help. When I plug it into the splitter and then plug the splitter into the computer, it starts off as a small static, then gradually gets louder and louder until my ears feel like they'll explode. It doesn't even pick up anything I say either. Help please?
