These are the possible causes why your mic doesn't work:
1. If it is not connected properly 2. Some issues with the microphone 3. The sound drivers are not set up properly.
These are the possible remedies for the above mentioned causes:
1. Try to check if the mic is connected properly. If it was improperly connected, it won't work at all. 2. Some microphone requires battery so try to check this out. Older versions of microphones do not work with the new ones. 3. Set up the sound card properly.

The Microphone might not be working, as it may not be enabled.
However, you may enable the Microphone manually by performing the below steps:
For Windows XP:
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. 4) Click the OK button. 5) Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.
For Windows Vista:
1) Right click Speaker near Clock - Recording Devices - right click in box - check 2) Show Disconnected Devices and Show Disabled Devices - check your mic - highlight them and then on lower right properties. 3) Make sure the proper one is enabled and check other settings - on Levels tab make sure MUTE is unchecked and APPLY / OK changes. For Windows 7: 1) Right click on the volume icon in the system tray and then click “Recording devices”.2) Right click on the blank place in the popped up window and then select “Show Disabled Devices” and “Show Disconnected Devices”.3) Right click on Microphone and then click “Enable”.4) Highlight the microphone and then choose “Set as Default Device”.5) Click Apply.6) Select Microphone and click on Properties.7) Click on Levels tab. The default Microphone Boost is set to 0, increase it. Hope this helps.
1. Right click the sound icon in the system tray 2. Click "Adjust audio properties" 3. Go to the "Voice" tab at the top 4. Ensure that a device is selected for the section "Voice Recording"--ensure the appropriate device is seleted--most likely ti will just be one option --make sure it is selected
in order to hear sound on the microphone you need to check the Mixer settings as the default setting for microphone (for playback) is mute as you would get some horrible feedback..
double click on the speaker icon in the bottom left and chose properties from the options menu you may (or may not) have the option to select microphone for playback, however there should be a setting for recording which should give you a slider to set the recording levels for the microphone, use sound recorder or other recording software to test microphone is working
You may not have a choice. The jack could be loose or have a bad solder joint. If the microphone is "staticky" on this system but not on another, then increasing the volume will only increase the static.
You can try a condenser microphone. Condensers require their own power (battery) and output a MUCH higher signal. High enough for the Line-In jack.
If you are using the microphone for voice chat or internet phone or gaming or similar, I STRONGLY suggest a USB headset, such as you can get from Logitech. You wouldn't believe the quality difference.
Go to start then control pannel then sounds and audio devices. Then in in the volume tab select advanced in the device volume section. When the mixer comes up go to options then properties select the recording option a recording mixer will come up make sure to check the microphone box. Raise the level in the ixer and you should be golden. If you want to hear the mic select playback mixer and raise the mic level. Hope this helps. : ]
