I want to use the on board audio for audio ‘out’ and more specifically for audio ‘in’
When i plug in an apple headset Windows recognises the headset and microphone and i can hear that the headset and microphone are working.
I have a 3.5mm splitter and by continuity checking have checked that the ring connections are the same as the apple headset.
When i plug in a stereo headset in the headphone part of the splitter it works fine, but when i plug in a microphone, immediately Windows changes the status of the recording device from being ‘default’ to ‘not plugged in’.
I have been all over the web to try and find a solution but I cannot. Also I cannot understand why an Apple headset will work with its built in mic, but a separate mic will not work with the splitter?
Has anyone any ideas?
