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.

I plugged a mic to my dell laptop but it isnt working, do i need a sound card?


No, if you have a jack to plug the mic into you have a soundcard. However the mic is probably muted in the mixer software. Go to the control panel, left click on sounds and audio, then click on the advanced button; this should open the mixer in the play back mode, at the top left of the mixer go to options and select properties, a new page will come up with a radio button showing playback or recording, switch the radio button to the recording list and check everything in the checkboxes including the mic and press ok. A new mixer should come up with your recording deviced, from here you can set your microphone device volume.

If the driver is alright of course is a setting or you haven't plugged the microphone right on the sound card. See also if the micro is cut from the settings or or the volume is low. Check these first

My microphone headset volume is too low.


It should be able to suppor 20db boost. the way to enable it is just different. Try this: Right click you speaker icon in the lower right side of your desktop and select Recording devices and highlight your mic and click on the properties button on the lower part of the sound window and a new Mic Properties window will open. Select the levels tab and change the Mic boost from there.

hope this helps.
If it does, please vote. Thanks!
