try opening the volume control by double-clicking the speaker in the start menu tray.

in the volume control, go under options->properties.
In the properties window, click the Recording button, and make sure all the volume controls listed below are checked.  Then say ok.

Now it should have a bunch of settings for recording, find the microphone one and be sure it is either NOT muted, OR that the "Select" option IS checked.  Also check to see that the "mute all" option is UNCHECKED.

What's the program that you use to send your voice over the internet?  Microsoft NetMeeting?  Yahoo Messenger? another?  Are you sure you have the microphone inserted into the correct plug?

If that doesn't help, another thing you can try is to open the volume control while you're running your program, and check the volume settings then.
