Hi Chibiagogo,

i have a slight idea that your mic might be on mute, have a look in your "control panel - sound and audio devices" there is a "volume" tab... just below that there is an "advanced" command button that will open your volume mixer, if the "mic" volume control does not show then you can enable it... check if it is set to mute ( please note this is for windows xp)

If this is not the case then you can also see in your "device manager" the your "sound, video and game controllers" has the "media control devices" installed. If not then maybe download the latest driver for your sound card or audio device on your motherboard.

Hope this was helpful or at least points you in the right direction. Best of luck friend!
