I just got a new pc ( windows 7 64 bit ) and i have tried to use my turtle beach z22's which worked perfectly on my old pc. Unfortunately , as you can expect with a new pc , there is always one problem atleast.

When i plug them into the correct ports , this is what comes up

so i select headphone, and the headphones work, as planned, however the microphone doesn't, selecting the microphone option means neither headphone or microphone works.
When i go on my devices , it sees the device however it has a problem , and when i trouble shoot , it says it needs to re install the driver, which there isnt any.

This When i go on my devices , it sees the device however it has a problem , and when i trouble shoot , it says it needs to re install the driver, which there isnt any.

What does it say in device manager? That it needs a driver or something else?

Sometimes things like this refuse to work unless its plugged into a powered USB hub.

Do you have a powered USB hub to see if this is the prob?

A guy in here had a similar prob with some kind of headset.

It wouldnt install the drivers (even tho he had drivers)

It wasnt until he connected the headset to a powered USB hub that the drivers installed

Have the same problem.

I have the Z22 for a half year now and i directly mailed the support.

The problem is our motherboard.
They told me the Z87 is not supported (at that time) and in a couple of monthes there should be a fix.
But guess what.. THERE AIN'T

So what i do now is hook it up to my laptop (wich has an AMD motherboard) and use voice via my laptop and for sound i use the second sound input (for your smartphone) the use it on my pc...

I'ts a real shame, but i think there is no fix incoming..

EDIT: but i will check out the hub idea :)
