    i never encountered this when i used vista, does your headset come with its own driver? or is there a mute button thats on? (just have to ask... ive done that before >.>)

    driver problem maybe?

    Have you checked to see if the mic volume is off or muted?

    Try the little things, does your sound work apart from the mic? Plugged in the correct hole etc

    Theyre not drivers for the headset, theyre drivers for the sound card the headset is plugged into

    If you were using xp, chances are windows had built in drivers that they used, and worked. Vista on the other hand needs drivers for everything
