Windows 7: Sennheiser PC 350 microphone not working

Sennheiser PC 350 microphone not working

Hello

First my specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate English
Headset: Sennheiser Worldwide - PC 350
MSI P35-NEO-F, Intel P35 (Realtek onboard soundcard)

I let Windows 7 install two drivers (High Defintion Audio Device and Realtek High Defintion Audio), I then installed this driver/software MSI Europe ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more (Realtek High Definition Audio Driver at the bottom)

The sound is working, but my microphone wont work. It worked on XP with the same driver, but there is no sound coming when I speak. The volume indicator is also not moving.

Here is what the sound settings look like in Windows 7 and Realtek HD Audio Manager:

It doesnt matter if I use stereo mix or anything else. It doesnt change

Any ideas?

Thanks

Right click the speaker icon in the system tray. Recording devices. Set the mic to be the default communication device.

Hopefully you are plugged into the back of the machine. If not, use the other setting shown for front.

Yes, but there are two kinds of default. Regular default and also, default communication device.

Do you have it set as the communication one too?
