headset/mic icon

I was adjusting my headset/microphone in the control panel when I mistakenly disabled it. The icon disappeared and I canít figure out how to retrieve it. The head phones still work but the mike is dead. I didnít unplug the device but the system doesnít see it. Any help is appreciated.
