No, depending on what version of windows you are using the microphone is muted by default in the sound properties dialog box.
Double click or right click your volume icon in the task bar area near the clock and go to sound mixer or properties and UNCHECK the mute microphone button. Then adjust the recording level accordingly using sound recorder or similar program.

My headset is not wireless. the built-in mic isnt working

Did you check it is inserted in the Mic socket and not Auxillary Inout which is the other socket on the back of your computer?

Also go to Control Panel/Sound and check that the settings don't have the microphone Muted. You can sometimes get to this location quicker if you have the speaker icon down on the right side of the screen by the clock. Just double click it.

My internal microphone isn't working, it says that it there and nothing wrong, but when you speak it doesnt pick up any sound

Try using different applications that use the microphones like skype or other chat software. You haven't mentioned which OS you are using. Depending on which one, you'd have settings that enables you to choose between multiple microphones like the mic of your headset and the internal mic.

If these do not work, your mic must have become defective and might need to be serviced or repaired.

My headset microphone isnt working? i record a test message and do not hear the playback sound. should there be software on my computer to correspond to the headset?

There should be basic Operating System sound controls or proprietary software if you have a sound card. They would control mic, headphone and speaker settings among other things. It varies with the O/S. On Windows, start looking in Control Panel.

Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work

Your jack may have been damaged, or the apple mic may not be compatible. Purchase another pc compatible mic to check. Or you could try a multimedia headset with mic that plugs into your usb port. Take a look at RadioShack for headsets, I saw one in a store near me. and they should have them online.

No sound when connected on aim

Is your microphone integrated into your webcam? Make sure the correct device is selected. Go into Edit, Settings, Enhanced IM. Under Audio and Video, make sure the Microphone device selected is a functioning mic, such as Logitech Mic, or if using a headset, select the USB headset (if usb) or your sound card if using a mic plugged into your built in or add-on sound card.
