Microphone will not work

My mothers microphone will only work in msn, she has bought a language program but widows will not recognise that a microphone is installed.

try looking in device manager and see if there are any yellow marks? Go to control panel and click on sound devices and make sure non of the sections has a tick in mute and that all volume sliders are at least part way up. Double check that the mic is plugged into the correct socket ie the light green one. Msn may be seeing it although in the wrong socket ie the light blue one.

no its in the correct socket as it works fine with msn, its also been tested in both front and rear socket

The mike socket's surround is not green, but light pink or red - green is for the speakers' output.
