I have a microphone that works only as such, with no speaker and is not a headset. I am trying to get it to work with my Lenovo x230 Tablet laptop.
When I plug it into the 3.5mm port on the right side next to the Ethernet input nothing happens and it doesn't show up in my windows sound or do anything except change the top left port under "Analog System" from gray to black. Unfortunately that is the audio port not the microphone port. This is shown by the next two pictures.
Microphone not plugged in:
Microphone Plugged In:
So something is up...
I tried again by going to the "device advanced settings" and changing it from "classic mode" to "Multi-stream mode".
This atleast shows in the windows control that there is a "external mic" and a "docking mic". I have no idea what the docking mic is. Anyway this picture below is what happens before I plug in the mic:
And now when I plug it in:
As you can see the windows controller is unchanged in the input recording tab but, the realtek program has detected the mic again by turning on the analog headphone button on. As well as adding an extra tab to the program called "HD Audio 2nd output". As far as I can tell t thinks my mic is a headset for some reason. I wish to change this. When I switch over to the sound tab on the windows program it shows an added headset which is actually it detecting my microphone in windows. It only detects this headset when the realtek program is in advanced "Multi-stream mode". Here is a picture illustrating both the new tab on the Realtek Manager and the Windows Sound tab showing the headset which is again actually my microphone.
And yes I have updated my Realtek Driver to the latest version it is Version shown in the picture below:
Any help I could be given would be greatly appreciated as I have been trying to find a solution to this problem for the past couple days.

Also it seems as if the Microphone and earbuds from my Samsung Galaxy S3 do work as both a headset and Microphone. But my microphone only device doens't work, what gives?
