I've recently just built my first gaming Pc. I have a headset but i can't use the mic on it. When i plug it in the green headphone jack, i get audio but no mic. When i plug it into the red, i get mic but no audio. Is there any way to fix this without using a splitter??

The microphone is normally the pink port. have you checked the headset on another PC?

BTW, some info on your motherboard and headset would be good

I haven't checked the headset on another computer but it works fine on my xbox. My motherboard is the Asrock b450m-hdv and my headset is an astro a10

Yes you will need a splitter for that head set to work.

On the XBox the mic and head phone jack is built into one and on most computer they are split into one for the mic and the other for the headset.

Something similar to this should work for you. There are others this should get you started.
