Hi my name is ***** ***** you tell me what model headset you are using?
Does the headset have 2 plugs on the end? One for the mic and one for the headphones?
Yeah, you need a splitter.. Right now your headset has the mic and sound combined into one plug. You laptop has inputs for each.. You need this to make your headset work with your laptop.http://www.turtlebeach.com/product-detail/cables-parts/audio-mic-splitter/221
