Windows 7: How do I change my audio settings to headset?

How do I change my audio settings to headset?

So I recently got my computer fixed and I am trying to talk on skype because I record youtube videos. Up to now I've been using my Turtle Beach X32's as my headset and I just had an additional cord I purchased for $10. Now that I'm back my headset won't work. I can hear through it but I can't speak to it and I have both cords plugged in the right place. I do think it's a setting that you need to change... help?

Welcome to Seven Forums Matt123321. Easiest is right click the speaker icon in the system tray and click on Open volume mixer> Make sure the mic isn't muted.

If it isn't, try some troubleshooting:

Right click the speaker icon in the system tray> Click Recording devices> Does it show the microphone with a green check mark and default device?

If not, highlight microphone> Click on Properties> Does the Jack information show the location you are plugged into (IE: you have it plugged into front, does it list rear panel, etc.)

If the mic is detected and default, highlight it and click on Configure> Click on Set up microphone> Click on type of microphone (headset?), and click on next> Follow the wizard

If needed, post some screenshots of the sound screens. I don't use a headset myself, but I'm sure many who do can help if my suggestions don't.
