does it need drivers? or more to the point does your motherboard need a driver to tell it what the microphone port does? Check the motherboard manufacturers website maybe for details/downloads...

just an idea!

check the mike is plugged in the same as it was, then check in the control panel under sounds and multimedia click the advanced button on the volume tab, the LINE IN is set to mute by default,

It is probable that the mic. input is muted. For Win98 this is in 'Start' > Programmes > entertainment > volume control > options> properties> recording. Check that the microphone box is checked.
Don't have XP here so can't give path for that O/S.

Just to simplify beeuuem's answer, double click on the volume control speaker in you task bar and the volume control will open.

Double click the speaker icon in the task bar, click options\properties\recording\okay make sure there is a tick in the box by the Microphone

try typing dxdiag into start/run then go to the network tab next make sure the mic is plugged in and click on the test direct play voice options box then run the wizard.will dectect if the mic is working.
