    Do you have a sound manager other than the speaker in systray. With realtek you get a sound manager app and in some version you get to tell it what is plugged in.

    What type of connector does the microphone have? The TRRS or TRS like the pictures I posted.

    If it has the TRRS, I suspect the PC requires TRS. Thus an adapter will be needed to convert the TRRS to TRS.
    Here is one adapter. It has two TRS plugs (one for microphone and one for headphone).

    I just checked my Toshiba Satellite Radius and it has a combo jack. It takes the TRS plugs.

    I bought a cable similar to that, but it still does not work.

    Should have asked earlier and maybe you said, my apologies for asking again.

    Has this device worked on another computer? Not often but sometimes things arrive DOA. Worth checking.
