Windows 7: Gaming Microphone Randomly Stoped Working! Help Please!

18 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Gaming Microphone Randomly Stoped Working! Help Please!

I booted up my laptop today to find that my Gaming Headset's Microphone was not working! The Headset is a Fatal1ty CREATIVE series. I have not damaged it in any way, and have treated it with upmost care. I really need this mic, because I am a commentator on Youtube!

After a few reboots, but my MIC still refusing to work, I tried tweaking a few settings to no avail Then, I unplugged the headset, and found that the laptop's onboard Microphone was still working :O

I would use that MIC for my commentary, but the quality is REALLY BAD!

Has anyone had a similar problem, and/or knows how to fix it?

The laptop is a Dell XPS L502X running Windows 7 Home Premium x64!
