Does the microphone work in any other computer? Does the microphone use small batteries by any chance?

Check the settings: Go to Sounds and Audio Devices in Control Panel. Under the Volume tab, select Advanced. Select Options - Properties and then click the radio button 'Adjust volume for Recording' and make sure there is a tick in Microfone in the bottom part of the window. Click OK and make sure that the microphone is selected in the Recording Control window.

Just a small addition here when you are looking at the sound controls make sure that the Microphone setting isn't Muted as well.

If you have an Advanced Option select it set the master control to full on and boost the Mic Input and then play with the Mic's volume control until you experience feedback through your NB.

Once you get to this stage it's just a matter of setting things so you don't get a Feedback Loop and then everything should be fine.

Of course if it doesn't work at all with the suggestions here and in the proceeding post try that Mic on a different computer just to make sure that it is actually working. Quite often you'll find that the lead has been broken just at the plug by being pulled through a tight angle to the plug and breaking one of the internal wires.
