Logitech Headset Not Working

Question: Logitech Headset Not Working

I have a headset that works on my other computer, but isn't working on this one. I've tried switching soundcards, and I don't know if that's part of the problem. The sound works fine, but it won't pick up the microphone. It didn't work with the built-in soundboard either.

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp.080413-2111) [32 Bit]

My only option for both Sound & Recording device is "Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio"

If anyone could help me with this, that would be great. Thanks.

My Logitech headset with headphones and mic is ureently not working for no reason at all, its a smiple plug in one (not usb) you plug the jacks in to the mic and sound slots, which has been done correctly.

No drivers or anything just plug in and go, but recently it has stopped working its only a cheap pair so its not major just wondered why?

Thanks for any help,

Answer:Logitech Headset No Working!

Are you sure it's the headset? Have you tried real speakers to confirm it's not the soundcard? If speakers still work, there's probably a broken wire. (Logitech quality, you know!)

I've searched the archives for this problem but can't find any references to it.

I just bought a Logitech Headset but it doesn't come with a CD. It's meant to self-install using the Win XP New Hardware Wizard. But, although Windows finds new hardware and recognises it as Logitech USB Headset, it can't find any software and thus tells me that it wasn't installed properly and may not work (no kidding!). I figure I need a driver but Logitech say they don't provide them and I've searched the web without any luck - it probably doesn't help when I don't really know what I'm looking for!

I've downloaded AIDA32 to let you guys know about my system - just tell me how to get the report to you.

Thanks very much,

Answer:Logitech USB Headset not working

Hi and Welcome

First off you have XP Home but what service pack is installed? as the drivers for headsets so Logitech say are included with SP2 ( or if on SP1 with this update ) I would imagine these usb headset will be or need USB2.0 drivers.

What is the model version of headset?

Did you built this PC if so what is the motherboard make and version?
IF pre-built ( HP, DELL etc ) what is the model version?

if you goto Device Managment ( right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager ) do you have any yellow ! marks, if so what?

reason for asking above three questions is I wonder if the chipset/motherboard drivers have been installed which are needed for USB2.0 drivers to be detected and installed properly.

Hello. I tried a lot of different things before registering here and asking for help. I have already dealt with Logitech's customer support, and finally after trying a few things that they sent to me, they said to contact either Microsoft or my computer's manufacturer for further assistance. I don't want to have to pay to fix this problem, so hopefully someone on here will know what to do.

I have a Logitech USB Headset, and it worked fine for about six months or so. It all of a sudden one day just stopped working, and I didn't change any system settings, or install or uninstall anything new. The only thing I did before I realized it stopped working was allow Windows XP to do it's updates. I even tried to uninstall the updates to fix the problem, and that did not work. While it is connected to the computer, it shows up under the Device Manager, but a yellow exclamation mark is next to it. When trying to update the driver, it goes through all the motions, and finally it says after trying:

"There was a problem installing this hardware: Logitech USB Headset. An error occured during the installation of this device. A service installation section in this INF is invalid."

I have tried connecting the headset to other USB ports, and it still does not work. I tried connecting it to another computer, and it works just fine. So it cannot be the actual product, but something within my computer.

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, because I&... Read more

Hi, first post

headset works fine for 7 seconds, then turns itself off over and over

I have a year old Logitech G930 USB wireless headset that just stopped working today. At around noon I went to an appointment and left the headset unplugged. I came home about an hour later to find the headset turned off. No surprise there, probably ran out of batteries as it was unplugged. I turn it on just to check, and to my surprise it worked. Seven seconds later, it beeped to notify me that it had turned off. No problem, I plugged it in and waited a few minutes, turned it on, and the same thing happened. Seven seconds, then off. Something to note, the seven seconds and working perfectly fine, there's no humming or buzzing or screeching noise.

When it was working normally, I could have it turned on while plugged in, so I tried it this way, and it still powered off after seven seconds. This has never happened before. I tried all of the normal things, rebooted my computer, switched to a different USB, and tried to use it on a different computer, all to no avail. The only things I am yet to try is updating/reinstalling my drivers, which I doubt is the problem seeing as it doesn't work on more than one computer, and installing the Logitech headset software, which I also doubt is the problem as I've had this headset for roughly a year and I haven't needed this. I'll keep you posted if I find a fix, I'm downloading the software as I type this - in the... Read more

^^ Just got that off ebay. It's in perfect condition and everything but I can't get it to work. I plug it in and I get this message:

So it tells me to check the device manager. Under USB in the device manager is my headset, listed as Unknown Device. When I go to properties for it, it tells me there are no drivers installed for it. Yet at the top of the screen there's a tab labeled Drivers, where some driver is listed.. I tried updating it but it said there is no better version of this driver then the one I have now.

Here's a pic of the device manager thing if it helps:
and what the driver tab says:
I'm on Windows XP Home, using SP2 if it matters

Answer:Need some help with Logitech 350 Headset

I've read up a little bit on the usb headsets. It looks like it should be automatically detected by windows and doesn't need any other drivers installed. I would say chances are you a got a dud headset. I try to stay away from e-bay for this reason. You have to trust the seller is selling you something that is working.

I'd say your only option at this point is to verify my theory that they are just broken by trying them on another system. I realize most people don't have 2 computers at their house. However in today's day and age most housholds have a computer. Try it at a friends house on their system. IF you get the same error then you got yourself some crappers. Sorry. Hope you didn't spend too much on them. I would contact the seller about this and if they say tough luck then give he/she a negative feedback.

Hi...I've just bought a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset. I had no problem connecting it up but when I go to try and record music & voice together it doesn't happen. So far I've been able to record voice only & can't get it to record any music at all. Playing music/mp3s is fine & it does have great sound but I need to get voice & music to record together. Is there a way to do this or is it just not possible with this type of headset ??...or is it perhaps a compatibility issue with my sound card (realtek)/computer (vista) ??

Any help would be greatly appreciated...thankyou.

I get the system sound indicating that a USB device has been plugged in,
but the main room speakers remain on - they used to switch off automatically..
I want it set up so that the headphones automatically mute the main speakers when plugged in..
it always used to do this, but after playing around with the settings, this no longer happens..
anybody know how to restore the normal settings?

Answer:Logitech G35 headset.., OK this is becoming a nuisance..

I've got three UI's for sound on this PC/Mobo

1. the Realtek onboard soundcard
2. Windows7's audio interface
3. Creative X-Fi (which appears to use the Realtek card) and the system doesn't recognise (!)

I want it set up so that the Realtek Hi-Def Audio (speakers) is the default
and the G35 (USB input) switches it out when plugged in, via a USB port
- it really ought to be straightforward..

At the moment the Room Speakers have the Default, which is OK
but I have to manually switch over to the Headphones when they're plugged in
and the sound via the Headphones is garbled when the 5.1 switch is enabled via the phones
although it's fine when the 2.1 stereo switch on the phones is in the "up" position

- what settings do I need to input so that
a. the headphones automatically switch out the speakers
b. get clear 5.1 sound from the G35 Headset

and which UI should I be using for all this, the Win7, or the Realtek interface..

PS: all drivers are up to date, BTW

Hello, I wanted to get a headset to use for online gaming and possibly using programs such as Skype. So I ordered a Logitech ClearChat Premium PC headset from Best Buy. The headset arrived and I proceeded to read the instructions to make sure that I did everything right, they were pretty straight forward; plug each cord into its respective slot (mic into mic and earphones into ear phones) and it should have been ready to go. But when I tested them out the mic didn't work and the earphones didn't produce any sound, instead the sound came out of the built-in speakers on my monitor. I found out that the earphones only work when I plug them into the slot on the underside of the monitor (where there is no mic slot) and neither the mic or earphones work when plugged into the slots on the front of the computer. Also I checked the devices and apparently the computer doesn't even register that the headset is plugged in. I tested out a friends headset which uses the same two plug style cord and I got the same results. I really don't know what to do now, can anyone help?

Also I just tried the headset with a laptop (which had a built-in mic) and it works fine on there but unfortunately the laptop can't do what I need the mic for. Clearly the problem is with my computer, if you would like to see the specs you can see them on my profile.

Hi there guys
So here's the problem. I've been using this headset for ages with Vista x64 Ultimate without any problems whatsoever. The other day I took my tower apart to install some new hardware I bought on boxing day (Radeon 5770, new PSU, new cpu heatsink) which should have nothing to do with the headset. Now, after it has all been put together again, Vista no longer recognizes what the device (headset) is, and it no longer shows up on my list of playback devices in audio preferences. Logitech has no software for this device on their site.
I had to move my Audigy 2ZS sound card to a different PCI slot to accommodate the new larger gfx card, but I don't think that had anything to do with it as the headset doesn't route through the sound card.
I'm a little lost here

The mic on my Logitech H340 headset stopped working on my Win 7 pc. It worked fine until yesterday, then suddenly stopped.

I unplugged the mic from its usb port and tried every other port on my pc, the mic still does not work.

I checked the (Hardware/Sound) preferences, which originally showed the mic as Logitech H340 headset. Once it stopped working, the preferences now list it as USB Audio. While in preferences, I found that the mic level was set to 0, I slid the arrow to about 60%, clicked OK as the "Apply" button is dimmed. The mic still did not work.

Then, I ran the troubleshooter and it found that the mic volume level was set to 0, the troubleshooter fixed it so that the mic did work. But, it did not set the mic back to the original Logitech H340, still shows as USB Audio.

HOWEVER, if I shut down my pc, whether it's for a day, an hour or 5 minutes, the mic no longer works so I have to run the troubleshooter again to fix it.

By the way, I can hear audio through the headset, no problems there, just with the mic.

This is the second Logitech H340 headset that has had this problem. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent a replacement (this summer), which, as I mentioned above, worked fine until yesterday, now, the same problem.

Is this a Win 7 problem as I have seen questions regarding the same issue in the Logitech forum, Tom's hardware, and random searches.

Thanks for any help provided. Jane

When the headset is resting on my monitor my computer recognizes the usb and everything is fine. When I attempt to sit in my chair and put on the headset the USB disables and my computer has trouble recognizing it again. I may have rolled over the cord with my chair a couple times as it is a very long cord. Any ideas on a fix or should I just buy another USB cord? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have a very annoying problem with a Logitech 350 headset. Recently I noticed that when the headset is connected, my operating system (Vista Home edition, SP1) volume control slider drops itself to the bottom of it's range. If I left click on the slider, I can lift it and hear my volume through the headphones, but as soon as I let go of the mouse button the slider immediately drops back down and I get no more volume through the headset. If I disconnect the headphones then the slider operates normally. I thought this would be a driver issue, but neither the manufacturer nor Microsoft offer any type of update that I can find. I've tried uninstalling the current driver and then reconnecting the headset, but it did not help. There have been no changes (newly installed software or new updates that I'm aware of) that could have caused the problem.

Thanks all for any help!

Try to check if its working by trying to record something in the widows sound recorder.(same steps except instead of pressing volume controll u press sound recorder).

Now if this doesnt work, go to control panel, switch to classic mode if using xp ,click on an audio icon ( not the SOUND AND DEVICES ICON!), although that might be the only one u see. But if there is a different icon click it, (in my case its called Realtek HD soud....) now if its like mine, go to: MIXER tab>>> click the two little dots (maybe the options icon on the mic area) and select MICROPHONE BOOSTER.

Yesterday I bought and installed a Logitech E3500 webcam, which came with a Logitech headset. The video capture works, as does the mike built into the camera, as does the small boom mike on the headset. What doesn't work is the headphone part of the headset. The two small jack plugs are inserted into the front colour coded sockets of the computer. The sound works perfectly through the main speakers when they are on but when off nothing comes through the headphones at all. Can't find anything relevant in this site's archive, and the Logitech support number produced nothing of value.

It seems it is fairly known that the boom on the Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset has an issue with picking up sound. Most places have stated that by using Microphone Boost that the issue is easily solved. However, in my case, it isn't. My webcam's mic works perfectly, but the headset picks up hardly anything.

While fiddling with some options, had it to where I could yell with the mic almost down my throat and be able to hear decently, but that defeats the purpose of having it. My options are all cranked up as high as I can get them, but the volume sliders on the sound control panel where you enable mic boosting are grayed out. Would they be able to make my mic audible?

All audio devices are set to my AC97 drivers (and they're up-to-date). I'm certain I've covered every base. Is there an extra software program I could use to boost it even further? I asked about this in Logitech's forums, but they only served to give no response, at all. So much for manufacturers supporting their customers.

I'd appreciate a timely response as I only have till Friday to determine if I need to return them.

I'm having a problem with my headset. Whenever i play a game or listen to music, after about 5-10 minutes the sound turns into gargled crap. Like a choppy, sputtering static noise.

On my office laptop I have a Logitech headset from the office (the H390 as far as I can tell) which I've been happily using with Skype, Office Communicator for about a year now.

But after upgrading Skype (which hung several times during upgrade) I can't seem to play audio through the headset anymore, not just in Skype but anywhere in Windows (running Windows 7 SP1).
I'm seeing an audio playback entry called "Communications Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)" .

If I go to my sound settings in Windows, trying to play any sound will fail ("Failed to play test tone"). The headset is my default playback device, selected, but it still doesn't produce any sound. AFAIK the mic still works.

Does anyone know how I can troubleshoot this problem? Windows' own troubleshooter gives up immediately ("Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem").

Answer:Logitech headset not giving playback

Take a screenshot of your 'Playback' tab under 'Sounds' (right click on the Volume in your Taskbar, and press Sounds). I've had a lot of Audio problems recently as well, so maybe I can find some pattern here.

So I have external speakers hooked up to an onboard soundcard through 2 headphone jacks and a mic jack. The USB headset is plugged in through a USB slot...

Currently, the issue is that I would like to utilize 2 separate sound outputs on my computer. The speakers for music and movies and other stuff (IE this remaining the default device) and having all ventrilo sounds come out of the earpiece on my headset, and having the mic work properly.

I have set the output device within ventrilo's setup setting to my headset earpiece, and the input device to my headset's microphone. Yet, the only way for ventrilo to utilize these settings correctly is to switch my default audio device to the USB headset. When I would like the default device to remain as the speakers.

Thanks for your time,

Hey guys, I have had this headset for about 8 months now and it has been great until recently the sound just stopped working. I have had to solder a joint after my dad stood on the cable and pulled out on his chair but it did work once i fixed it. Now I am truly stumped as the mic works and the solders seem ok just no noise comes out. I have tried it with all sorts of devices to no joy. I was watching heroes at the time with it and the sound just cut away, I did a bit of fiddling with the volume control by physically moving the wires around it and it seemed to do something but now it is just gone. I've tried fiddling some more but still no good. I could post pics if you really want. Or is it best I suck it up and get a new one I will see if I can get my friend with the same headset to dismantle it and compare. Other than that i am pretty stuck any ideas?

I don`t know if there is some software that must be installed but you should check all Sounds and Audio devices properties. Please check also the Volume control if there is option mute activated.

Volume control dial at the front side of your notebook should also not be set to minimum level.

Not sure whether this should be here or int he WIndows section as it seems to be linked to my OS.

Anyway, I just got the Logitech Gaming Headset G330 for Christmas (ps: Merry Christmas, all!). It has two speakers and a boom mic. The mic and speakers connect on separate stereo jacks, which can plug into a regular audio port, but also come with a USB dongle to integrate them into just one connection (mic + headphones = USB). Using the single headphone cable works great from my back panel audio, as well as my iPod. (Didn't try the mic one). However, when using the USB dongle on MY pc, the mic and headphones SUCK!!! But, on the Compaq netbook my little brother just got and my mom's Dell, it works just fine... A half hour on the phone with Logitech has determined that the hardware for the headset is indeed NOT faulty. It is a problem with my OS.

note - by sucks I mean the audio is low, garbled, staticy, has feedback, etc. Not what you would expect from a 50 dollar headset. I tested the mic with Ventrilo and my Realtek AvRack program to record, played back in Ventrilo and AvRack, also played iTunes music through it, and Windows system sounds sound just as bad.

The headset does NOT come with its own drivers; it uses generic USB Audio drivers. After some searching... I found a usbaudio.sys on the internet for XP, and replaced mine with that. Still, no improvement Does anybody have any ideas on what the problem could be? My mom said that maybe my Xbox 360 w... Read more

If your headset as a single jack plug it is probably incompatible with the socket on the sound card which needs a connection for the mike and another connection for the speaker/earpiece.

Download Install and then Run these two freeware utilities:

There is a terrific fairly new freeware registry clean-up program called Eusing Free Registry Cleaner which is also a great tool for scanning and then cleaning out 'everyday' dead registry entries. You can choose to scan the entire registry or only selected sections.

Before the program deletes any keys, it automatically creates a backup of the registry and allows you to easily undo any changes if needed. By default; this program creates this backup each time you use it and has a button labeled: "Restore Previous Registry" just in case you want to restore the previous backup.

For your own reference I'd strongly suggest that you read the More Feature Details part of the Eusing Free Registry Cleaner website in order to investigate what this program scans and offers to clean.

The other utility called CCleaner (standard edition) is available right here at Major Geeks and is also freeware. If you haven't already installed it; you should definitely give it a try. It is especially helpful for anyone who installs/reinstalls or removes programs or other items that affect the Windows registry on a regular basis.

This has been an extremely frustrating week for me, all because of logitech headsets.

1 week ago I purchased a logitech clear chat pro usb, it just stopped working, my OS (Windows 7 professional 64bit) just stopped recognizing it.

After reading many articles on google, it would have appeared that this is a wide spread issue that occured with usb headsets made by logitech.

So, I returned it, payed some extra cash and purchased a Logitech g330 gaming head set, this one had the pink and green adapters, and a usb adapter aswell. When I got it home, the mic just didn't work.

I have gone through all the sound settings, made sure it was un muted/ boosted/ set to default etc. I also have tried to use it on other computers with no success, yet another mic works on this computer, so i doubt it is my hardware.

Does any body know how to perhaps update the generic windows sound/ reset it to default? I have already updated the realtek sound drives to zero success.

Thank You


Answer:Logitech g330 gaming headset

If it don't work on your pc and other pc then I think the problem is with the mic. Updating Realtek driver may go bad if you chosen the bad driver but as you tested it on another pc then the problem may be with the mic itself. I would recommend you to return it and make the seller test it there.

I recently purchased A USB logitech Headset to use with ventrilo while playing WoW.

I recently bought a Logitech G230 headset for my PC. I plugged it into multiple audio jacks and I still couldn't hear anything coming through the speakers of the headset. It turns out the problem is that Windows isn't recognizing the headphones. I'm currently not at my home, so I don't remember exactly what it said. But it was something along the lines of the headset not being plugged in. What can I do to fix this? I tried plugging it into the front panel 3.5 mm headphone jacks as well as the ones on the back, also, there's no drivers that come with the headset.

Please help ASAP. I really want to use my new headset!

Answer:Windows 7 Not recognizing Logitech G230 Headset

Try the headset in a different PC, if it acts the same there it suggests the headset is defective.

The only two audio jacks you should be plugging it into is the Headphone jack on the front panel and the GREEN speaker jack on the rear. On the front panel jacks, as this is a custom build do you have the HD Audio connection from the front panel plugged into the motherboard? Has the front panel jacks ever worked?

"Windows" doesn't recognize headphones as a device. The sound chip may recognize it but that's all.

Hi, guys.

I'm wondering if any of you know of a workaround to increase this mic's loudness (other than just getting a different headset, of course) or know of some software that will integrate into Windows, allowing me to boost the mic.

The headset doesn't use nor directly interact with my onboard audio hardware/software, just the basic Windows sound settings in the control panel. It's a pretty basic and flimsy headset that doesn't come with any kind of audio software beyond just drivers, but it's very comfortable and has decent enough clarity for my needs, so I would prefer if I can get the mic working loudly enough. I would like to use it for game chatting, recording, VOIP, and making some tutorials, but as it is, I have to turn down all the other audio levels on my system (game volume, etc.) and crank up the volume output to hear the audio at balanced levels. Fine tuning the volume levels ahead of time for each specific scenario is above my production budget, even though I can lower the volume levels to compensate in post, as it where. (Bit tongue in check there as my setup and aspirations don't involve a professional studio... obviously, using this headset. )

The only thing I can think of off hand now that I haven't tried is passing the mic audio out and running it back in again to raise the levels with my onboard audio software, but that seems pretty sloppy to me and would likely add even more noise than boosting it digitally. I'm not sure how plausible that is, if I ... Read more

Yesterday I bought the above-named headset to use when playing Team Fortress 2. It connects to my mobo with two separate 1/8" plugs -- one for the headphones, and one for the mic. I'm positive I've got them in the right jacks.

Right off the bat I noticed that I had to turn the volume down substantially from where I had it with my regular Sony headphones -- I was getting tons of high-pitched interference that disappeared when I turned down the volume, even though playback still seems to be good and loud.

The mic, however, is crap at this point. When I went to test it in the audio section of the control panel, I found that it barely registers on the level meter, even when I'm speaking at louder than normal volume. In properties I brought the mic volume all the way up, and made sure that the mute box is not checked.

The headset comes with its own mic mute switch on the cord, and it's open.

When I went to the voice recorder and did a test, what I recorded was a faint high pitched mix of static and electronic squealing -- sort of like the sound a fax machine makes, and yes -- it's not unlike the initial interference I was getting on the headphones. There was nothing in there that sounded like my voice or words.

When I went to test my mic in-game (before actually playing), I found that speaking at the same louder-than-normal volume pushed the level up into the red, but I couldn't hear myself over the headphones -- not sure if I was suppo... Read more

I don't have any clue what would cause this, or what did cause it. I have the Logitech ClearChat Wireless headset.

Well, something's happened with the volume controls, now when I click them and a program window is open, it closes it. Eithe up or down, it appears to be acting as an ALT+F4 macro button. I would have posted this on the logitech forums, but I can't sign in, even though I'm using the right email and password, it won't let me.

This is really frustrating, because sometimes I listen to music in the broswer and I use the volume controls on the headset, and now using them closes the browser window, or windows media player, whatever window is open and focused gets closed when the buttons get pressed.

Hey guys,

After successfully setting up a headset on my own pc I felt confident enough to do the same on someone else's. That was very naive of me.

The system I am working on is called a Shuttle X (it has a Philips DVD drive and speakers) and is running Windows XP. It has two handy plugs for mic and headphone, which I used to plug in the mic and headphone of a new Logitech headset.

Problem: the mic of the headset doesnt work (headphone does work). I cant record sound, neither in my Skype test call nor in Windows Sound Recorder.

Im finding recommendations to access Control Panel > Sound and Audio devices and in the Audio tab of that dialog, hit the Volume button under Sound Recording to see volume controls (the familiar set of horizontal sliders). There, I am told to select Mute on the Microphone Volume control.

Problem is, that Microphone Vol control does not have a Mute checkbox but a Select checkbox which I cant uncheck. It also has an Advanced button, which opens up a range of options including an Alternate microphone check box which does not solve the problem, and a Microphone boost checkbox which also does not solve the problem.

There are constant reference to NVIDIA nForce Audio everywhere, and it seems that I should somehow tell this nForce that I have an external mic, but I dont know where or how. If the system has a built-in mic, it also doesnt seem to work.

Also note that plugging in the headset means the speakers no longer work.

Today i just bought some ear phones, with a connected mouth piece. Problem is that my two front ports are dodgy for the microphone and headphones. So if i put the jacks from my headset into the back, i have to take out my speaker input.. Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated

Answer:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

Hey all.
I bought a Logitech LX7 Mouse off of ebay.

I have installed the drivers for it as well as Logitech setpoint.
Setpoint recognises the mouse as well as windows.
However when i move the mouse, it doesnt move on the screen. I know that the mouse laser is working because the Invisible Optic light turns off when the mouse is moved.

Could this b a fault in the mouse or connector?
Or should i return this mouse?

Thanx 4 any help!

Answer:Logitech LX7 not working

check the wires coming from the mouse. Ebay e-scammers frequently sell mice with bad cords.

I just unplugged everything from the back of my computer to install my 8800gt, I turn my pc back on and notice my LCD screen isn't rotating but just displaying the logitech logo, The macro keys also aren't responding. So I uninstall and re install with the newest drivers and get the same thing. The media keys seem to work just fine but the LCD/Macro keys don't want to. The logitech gamepanel/lcdMon both can detect the keyboard just fine. Though the G-series keyboard profiler keeps freezing up when ever I open it. Help!

Edit, If it helps its a first gen version of it.

Edit 2,
Blah nvm, Can a mod close or delete this? I solved it by going to device mangers and found that windows must of installed it again. So I just deleted the both installs re booted and it worked fine

Basically yesterday I replugged my headset in and all of a sudden no sound started coming through but the mic still worked, people could hear me. So I decided to see if the actual headset was broken in Hardware and Sound in the control panel but the sound bars of the headset rise accordingly to my music. It's as if my headset if working but its disabled. I'm not too sure what to do at this point.

Answer:Headset mic working but its speakers working.

Sounds like something has happened to the headset, based on what you report.
What type of headset is this? USB? or does it have a 3.5mm stereo plug(s)?

Can you try it on a different PC to see if it works OK or not?

I bought a Natec Genesis HX55 USB headset. The first time I plugged it in I heard audio which was quite loud and clear. A few minutes later it got quieter and more static'y. Now there is absolutely no sound. I have contacted their customer support to no avail. It shows up in my list of playback devices and when I play a video or some music the little green bars move to show there's sound but absolutely nothing is coming through the headphones. Pulling my hair out over this as I can't find any help or solutions and I need it for work. Some assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I'm running Windows 8.1 x64(Unfortunately).

I have tried everything. I will say this again. I have done everything to make it pick up. Someone please help. I am desperate to get this to work. The last thing I want to do is to reinstall Windows.

Okay. There is a Dell computer that is connected to the linksys router, broadband cable and the logitech headset, all of this means that the cable comes into the home to the router it splits to the computer and the ps2. Here's the problem. The headset does not work on any of the ps2 games. The headset is brand new. Walk me through step by step on how to make the silly thing work. I know nothing of computers or routers, and all this other stuff. So if you have ideas or help please please please make it step by step basic stuff. Thanks.

I just bought a Logitech Premium Stereo headset (the 3.5 plug one, not the USB) and only just a few minutes ago tried them, plugged them in the soundcard in their corresponding slots, yet they don't work, not even after reinstalling updated drivers. I've been told that they might be faulty, but when I ran a test for them, mic and headphones both registered sounds, but I couldn't hear them...

I got a Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 soundcard, which is quite old, and a really old MB, Via KuDo something...

Any ideas anyone?

I have a Creativ(E?) Fatal1ty
I've updated to the latest drivers, nothing 'happening.

People seem to be able to hear my computer sound, but not the mic itself, and I've tested the mic on another computer and it's working just fine there.
What can the issue be?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

After some research, it could be the driver that's corrupt
Is there any FREE program that could fix this?

HI all

I used to use a USB headset and the sound and mic worked fine. But alas, the headset kicked the bucket and died last week. I bought a bright shiny new expensive headset, the Carcharias by Razer.

Well, this headset has the mic and audio jack and not a usb. I plugged it in.... the audio sounds great but for the life of me, I cannot get the mic to work. I have it plugged in the back of my PC right into the sound card. Pink in pink, green in green. LOL But it wont work.

I dont really know where to go from here.

I have gone to the control panel - sounds - Audio tab, In sound recording field, the drop down box doesnt show anything other than SB XFI Audio which is my sound card.

Same thing in the Voice tab under voice recording. Just my soundcard. No option for the headset.

What type of cable is it? If you had to get a adapter of any sort in order for it to plug into your sound card jack on your system; there is a chance that windows might not be able to pick it up.

I recently got a new headset to replace my broken one and noticed that the only cords on this headset are a 3.5mm green audio cord and a usb. I figured that the recording device would be the usb since there's no mic in, but I'm having issues making this work. As far as I could find, there's no drivers for this headset posted anywhere online or on any official site.

The headset is found here with all it's details:

I should note that the audio works fine and it's just the microphone isn't getting picked up.
