I recently bought a brand new Logik Wired over-ear headset, that includes a removal microphone. The main purpose for this purchase was so thought I can use a microphone. Unfortunately, I cannot.. My laptop has a two-in-one audio jack, which was a little confusing at first, but after some research, I found out the purpose of it. It's a microphone and headphone combo.
Anyway, I did some more research about how to connect the microphone and headphone set together, and turns out I'll need to use a wire splitter. With my headset purchase, I bought that wire splitter, hoping for it to work. Fortunately, it seems to work, since I can hear clearly through the headphones, but the microphone doesn't work. I tried a different splittter, and received the same results; "Mic in at front panel (black) not plugged in"
I looked over my headset's box, and noticed a little note; "System Requirements Microsoft Windows XP/VISTA/7/8, MAC OS X" Re-read that a million times, and turns out, it's not compatible for Windows 10, which is my PC's current version. Took the hand to the face, and grunted.. >.< I'm not really sure if this affects anything, since Windows 10 is pretty similar to Windows 8, but just to be sure, I'm going to keep trying before I purchase a new headset.
But uh, is there a fix to this? I mean, I'm not sure if purchasing a new headset, that's compatible with Windows 10 will fix anything. That's just an assumption of mine. I'll leave you some helpful info below, that you can refer to:
"Mic in at front panel (black) not plugged in"
Audio System: Bang & Olufsen (presuming)
I presume my Realtek HD Audio Manager is replaced by Bang & Olufsen. (not entirely sure, to be honest) Realtek seems to be installed on my laptop, just not the manager thing.
Not a technical expert at all, considering I'm only at the age of 13. If you're able to break down any troubleshooting that could fix my problem, that'd be an absolute great contribution c:

Any help is appreciated :]
