Combo Audio Jack in GL502 Problem, Headset not Working??

Hi,
I am unsure where to put this, but i believe i am in the right place.
The thing is I cannot get my headset working, e.g. headphones with mic for gaming.
Headset has 2 jacks, one for mic and another one for the speaker, and since our laptop has only one, I've used Y splitter and both ends from headset are jacked in the that Y splitter and further Y splitter is connected into the laptop combo jack. Y splitter male end is 3 rings (4 poles).
Now, when I connect the splitter, I get a pop up from relatek asking me what have I plugged in:
1) Mic
2) Headphones
3) Speakers
Whatever I select I cannot get my headset working.

I've seen some threads on the Tom's hardware forums, some laptops has a realtek drivers which has one more option in addition to the 3 stated above, and that one is for the headset, and apparently they good to go.
I have not seen this option, does anyone else has similar issue??

I order the StarTech MUYHSMFF 3.5mm 4 Pin to 2x 3 Pin 3.5mm Headset Splitter Adapter M/F Male to Female and it works.

U2Desire,
many thanks for your solution... I will definitely try with that one as well, though I got it working properly now using USB
