I just got a new computer and I cant use the Microphone that is attached to the headset. On my previews computer it worked no problem. But now on my new computer it says that the microphone is says its not plugged in. But it is plugged into my headset.

What headset is it?

Common headsets with analogue (not usb, using 3.5mm) had two sets of wires, one for speakers and one for mic.

If its a 3 ringed all in one 3.5mm which i hope its not because that wont help you. 3 ringed audio jack is not a common feature on front audio cases and cases with front panel audio are for 2 ring plugs.

I'm not sure how it worked previously if it was audio only.
You may need some sort of adapter for it to work on your new PC.
Be sure and check that its enabled in audio manager (in recording devices)

Sorry about that. If you haven't looked already, adapters are pretty cheap, you could pick one up for about 10 dollars.
Try different jacks, the back of your PC should have a bunch.
