Razer isn't very clear on how it connects, except for mentioning a 3.5 mm jack, and a drawn picture of a 4 pole jack. Most laptops and consoles use that type of connection. However most desktop PCs need two 3.5 mm jacks, one for stereo out and one for mic in. Both on front and rear connection.

What type of PC/connection are you trying to connect it to?

The main culprit is realtek driver.mine too doesn't work with realtek driver.the only solution for the mic to work is to change realtek driver to windows inbuilt hd audio manager.
