Default Headset setup problems

I bought myself a razer piranha, my first headset in a while. It is a USB headset.

I finished plugging this thing in, everything put in the right place, but for some reason my Vista 32-bit home premium doesn't detect the Headset.

My Sound card is my speakers, or that is what it says, and all i can say is that I've tried going into the control panel and looking for sound to try and detect this thing but it doesn't work.

Could it be a problem with some of the wires? Maybe the USB wire? because when I unplug and replug my speakers, it gives me an alert sound and it says " Detected new Device"( or something along those lines). This does not happen at all with my Headset.


If anymore information is needed, please ask


thanks for any help.

bump.Any help at all?


I recently reformatted and got service pack 1 but it doesn't work. Could it be the Audio and Microphone mini plug connectors themself?


It DOES work on other computers, So I don't know whats wrong
