How to use microphone on desk top?

Good Morning Folks

I want to do some home based work on my desktop which requires the use of a microphone. . However, the error message - Please plug in a microphone.

Could someone be kind enough to tell me how I do that?

A bit more explanation/details would be useful!

Do you get this message after you plug in the microphone?

If so are you plugging it in the front or back?

What make/model of microphone?

What operating system?

Also do you have a sound card installed or on board sound ?

Further to the above, does your computer have three different coloured plugins, if you are not sure what card or if one is installed?.

What type of microphone are you trying to use?.

Have you opened Control Panel (Operating system?) in perhaps Programmes and checked that for additions for installation of sound?.
