Some computers have a special jack labeled line in. If your computer does not have a line in jack, you can use the microphone jack. You can then adjust the volume of the device in control panel under sound options. The headphone jack is only for output. I have seen some computers where you plug in a cable to the microphone jack and you will be asked what kind of device it is.

Your microphone could be a mono or
single channel pickup. Look at the microphone plug and count the isolators
between the metal contacts, if you count one isolator and two contacts you have
a mono microphone, or if you have two insulators and three contacts you have a
stereo microphone. If your computer only has a mono microphone input you may
have to use your line in on your computer. If your volume is weak and you get
noise on your channel you may be required to use a microphone pre amp and plug
the output into the line in jack. Last make sure your computer speaker mixer is
set correctly for stereo.
This is the issue regarding the Internal Microphone in the Computer.
Your contacts cannot hear you, until you have enabled the Microphone in the Computer.
You will find the information to enable the Microphone below:
1) Double-click on the Volume Control.
2) Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu.
3) Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section. Click the OK button. Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.
