    I purchased a Logitech headset microphone for online
    gaming. It has 2 mini plugs-1 pink(mic) and 1 black(line
    in) which are connected to the appropriate jacks on my
    computer (running Windows XP Professional). I get sound
    through the earphones but the mic doesn't seem to pick up
    sound. I just get a flat line when using Sound Recorder
    as a test. I've gone through all the sound and microphone
    control panels trying various configurations but nothing
    seems to work. Yes, all mic volume sliders are at least
    halfway up and all mute boxes are unchecked. I also have
    a 5.1 channel speaker system (Creative Inspire 5400)
    because my motherboard (ASUS A7N8X) supports surround
    sound. As such, I have the 5.1 option chosen in speaker
    settings. Under "Advanced" options in Master Volume, only
    the box for "Rear speakers connected to line in" is
    checked. I did this because it maintains sound out to the
    center channel speaker and subwoofer so I don't have to
    experience games exclusively through headphones. If I
    have to give that up to get the mic working though, I
    will. Just advise as to what I should do. Thanks.

    Try to look at settings in control panel, in sound there is a selection
    of your device.
