So I bought the Creative Fatal1ty HS-800 gaming headset a few days ago and it arrived today but I've been having a lot of problems with it. Firstly I cannot get the microphone to work for the life of me, I have been on Numerous Forums and even used the manufacturers knowledge base but I couldn't find anything that worked, plugging the microphone jack into the rear I/O has the same effect as plugging it into the front one. Secondly if I plug a USB device into a front USB port the headset will emit a sort of high pitched noise which will persist until the USB device is unplugged. Lastly the audio when gaming is reversed, for example something happening to the left of me will come out of the right headphone and vice versa. I think the cause of the last problem is somewhat related to this, I have a pair of speakers plugged into my rear I/O port which work fine. Not problems with them at all and the sound comes out how it should, if I open the Realtek control panel and test the right and left speakers they work correctly, but on the headset they are reversed I think if I was to configure the audio to work correctly on the headset it would interfere with my speakers somehow. If anybody here has any advice for me I would be glad to hear it.
