In some cases installed drivers become defective for one reason or the other. You may try a free program from Glaysoft called GlayUtilities. Run the program and let it find faults. Clean the system when it finds errors. After the system is clean; reinstall the USB headset drivers and see if that works. That's a Start

First of all, ditch XP! It is full of security holes! It's been EOL for years.

This may help.
If the app auto-starts, go into msconfig and disable any references.
Check in services and disable any instances
in system, look for your mic and remove (ensure it's not plugged in)
if the software as a install/repair/remove option, select remove
Try to reinstall and apply the mic only when requested.

Uninstall the first download in the Delete Programs menu and then try re-installing the software as a fresh copy

You can see if the wire is made corresponding to the USB 1.x/2.0 standard. (All USB cables should follow the standard, but many manufacturers don't respect this and use whatever cables they get cheap.)
The Pin-out and wire colors can be found here:

1 VBUS Red (or orange) +5V
2 White (or gold) Data?
3 Green Data+
4 GNDBlack (or blue) Ground

Hope this helps!

Go to Control Panel--->Sounds and check whether the Headset is in mute

If you go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager, you'll likely see the device listed in there. It either has a broken driver, or wrong driver. I would recommend you find a device that's not working properly or has missing driver (it would have a yellow mark in front of the name) and delete it. Then click at the top to refresh the list/search for new hardware, for it to install new driver. You may also try to open the properties of that incorrectly installed device and click on Reinstall, then point to driver that came with the headset. But given this is Microsoft product, it be capable of downloading the driver from Windows Update. The point is that's already installed but either with incorrect driver or no driver. That usually happens when you plug it in before installing driver. So you need to remove driver and reinstall it.

Another thing you can try if after installing doesn't work is use a different USB port. But that will use the same driver already installed for that device, so just doing this alone won't help in your case.

Hope it works for you.

I bought the headset recently and on first plug-in --- nothing! But then I realized that I had to open Sound in System Preferences and select them as the output choice. Works fine, though I haven't had a chance to test it out fully. But it works!
