Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to get my microphone headset to work on my laptop. The headset has separate 3,5 mm audio jacks for mic and earphones, while the laptop has a unified audio jack. I have an adapter, but I can't get the mic to work (tested using Skype test calls). Mic is on, volume is up, everything is connected properly, but Control panel does not see the mic and no audio gets recorded. I had the same problem with my previous headset. Has anyone gotten that 2-into-1 audio adapter working properly? If yes, then it is possible that my adapter is faulty, and if not then I need to get a USB headset. Thanks for any ideas!
