    ok. couple of questions

    1. What color is the jack you are plugging into?
    2. What is the make/model of your computer.
    3. Are you getting spearker sound? do you continue get speaker sound after headset plugged in?
    3. When you open Control Panel do you see a control for one or both of:
    - Sounds
    - Realtek Audio

    If you see Sounds why don't you open it. Click Audio tab to see:
    - What is sound playback device?
    - In bottom right, Use only default devices checked or unchecked?>

    1. Pink jack is for microphone. Lime is for your headsetsoundf
    2. And to clarify:
    - Are you saying the sound plays ok from headset and its only a microphone problem with the headset?
    - Or you saying you hear sound from other speakers (e.g. internal) and both sound and microphone not working on headset
    3. Some computers have front and rear jacks.. Would still help for more specifics. Read this and with the next couple minutes will update this post (so lookk back) on how to use a tool to give me better hardware info

    Would also to get a report you could you provide
    Try Everest Home Edition to get the specs.
    Download from here and run it
    - Click Reports->Report Wizard
    - Get a Custom report, plain text, click Computer, motherboard and multimedia
    - Attach hte output
