My computer has two jacks, one for microphone and one for headphones. I have a headset with a detachable gaming mic and the headset only has one cord. Now I bought a splitter thinking that would work and I would be able to use the microphone after that. Now since I'm a total dunce when it comes to computers and tech, I need help. The splitter's microphone end wont pick up my headset's microphone. It may just be that the splitter is cheap (because I'm mostly broke all the time) but at the slight chance it might not be the splitter I need help. When I plug it into the splitter and then plug the splitter into the computer, it starts off as a small static, then gradually gets louder and louder until my ears feel like they'll explode. It doesn't even pick up anything I say either. Help please?

did you buy a standard 3.5mm splitter cable? Because those are for stereo audio only. If you look at the tip of ur headphone jack it will look different then that splitter you bought.

It seems to me you bought the wrong splitter, and you might damage ur headphone/pc with it,

oops sorry didnt mean to downvote your answer, but it is a 3.5 mm headphone jack, though now that you point out a difference in the tips of the headphones mine has 3 layers and the splitter has only 2.
