How to Fix Asus R303C Not Detecting Headset Mic

The solution is so simple, I’m smacking myself for not thinking of it earlier.

My problem was, although my computer had a single jack for both headphones and the mic, various programs weren’t detecting the mic on my headset.

I got my inspiration from a post on a forum. The guy said that he was so frustrated, he uninstalled the audio driver, and recommended people AGAINST it. But I ended up doing it just to try it out. I originially intended on reinstalling the driver, but it worked so well that I didn’t.

When in doubt, uninstall. Sometimes, less is really more.

I’m preparing for Abuela’s birthday tomorrow, making a huge salad for the feast. I’m almost done when I hear her call for me. I put my bowl down and find her in the living—

what. Why. Abuela. Wake up. Don’t –

Ambulance. Ambulance!
