Is the mike on? I'm not trying to insult you.  Some mikes have on/off switches.

Also, double-click on the speaker icon and select "Options" from the text menu and then select the first option - "Properties".

From there you can select the "Recording" radio button and make sure the "microphone" is selected.  Go back to the volume control panel and make sure the "microphone" slider is turned up to a comfortable volume.

Try this and then get back to me.

No offense, but I've seen people plug the mic into a mic jack on the modem.  Make sure yours is in the soundcard.
