I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 running on MS Windows 7 home premium. When I plug in my earbud headphones to the side jack, the microphone that picks up audio is the front mic - the one inside the earbud, which is pretty rubbish. Is there a way to have the laptop use the microphone on the headset wire, or does my laptop not support it?
The earbuds are plugged into the correct jack.
I have tried apple and samsung model earbuds that work on my phone, so I figured the computer was at fault.
I have tried boosting the input sound, which works, however is very low quality and only works at very close distances.
I have also tried seeing if the computer was picking up the mic that I want in the control panel, it wasn't.
I can provide any additional information needed.
