Abstract Geometric - 12”x12” card stock, art markers and pen

My first on a 12”x12” - my wife came across a pack remnant of it that had been used by us in ??? for some kind of forgotten work project.

On very temporary display on our shower curtain Monday evening - photo credit: my son. My hands shake too much for high angle shots. It went out to a friend in yesterday’s mail. Good times!

Help please

I can’t get my turtle beach x12s to work on my windows 8 desktop
My brother has exactly the same headset and he also has a windows 8 laptop and he says his headset works perfectly fine on his laptop

The problem I’m having is that my computer, 1: isn’t even picking up that it’s plugged in, 2: isn’t picking up the mic
The headset works perfectly fine on my windows 7 laptop and the laptop picks up that it’s plugged in straight away, I’m so lost i have no idea what to do to fix it

I can’t afford to buy a new headset
And I can’t afford to buy anything extra to get the headset working (anything over 20 dollars I can’t buy)
So i NEED to get this headset working
Because I’m also not guaranteed that if i do (by some miracle) get a new headset that that’ll even work on my desktop

If anyone knows how to help please please please help me
