    Are there two plugs for the headset?

    Yes pitt there are. i have plugged the one in the speaker out socket, which works fine cos i can hear music etc through the headphones, and i have plugged the mic plug in the pink socket which according to my dell set up sheet is the mic input. I know, i got a dell, but somebody has to. ( i havent the foggiest idea about computers so go easy on me

    Well, you could try and check your sound settings and see if the microphone is checked for recording. Which sound card do you use?

    Long time since I used live. Anyways, I hope I remember it right. Go to the sound properties, advanced and make sure that mic/microphone is ticked for recording.
    Btw, I usually try sound recorder afterwards to see if I am recorded.

    I have a Dell and it works fine, are you plugging the right plug in? You probably are, but it's always good to try the obvious first.

    This might help you and it might not, but it is worth a try.

    Double click on the little volume icon in your system tray (Lower right hand corner), go to Options at the top and then click on properties in the drop down list. Check the little box for Recording under "Adjust volume for", make sure that Microphone is selected in the "Show the following volume controls:" and click OK. In the new sound table, check the box in the Microphone cell that says Select and make sure that the volume is not all the way down.

    Try using your microphone after going through that and hopefully it will work for you.
