Microphone input on Dell Inspiron B130 doesn't work

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop. On the left side of the computer is a 1/8th inch input jack for a microphone to plug into seeing that the computer does not have a mic built in. I used a dell microphone for a while but then I lost it and about 6 months later I aquired an apple microphone. I tried to use the mic but it did not work. I used sound recorder and a free recording software called Audacity but neither was picking up sound. Then I used a 1/4inch to 1/8inch adaptor to plug my guitar directly into my laptop and that didn't work either. Then I tried both of these recording methods on my family's computer and they both worked, the apple microphone and the adaptor. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

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.
