Can't record sound or talk on PC phone

Yesterday, after working fine for weeks, the microphone component of my PC stopped working. I've ran the troubleshooter, tried plugging it into a different location & looked in my owners manual and device manager - but nothing addresses this problem. I even purchased a new headphone. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next?

Thanks.

My headphones have a mic & speaker plugs I use them to talk on GoogleVoice on my PC. No software program has been necessary.

This isn't a usb plug-in. The plugs are the ones you use for external speakers and a microphone but instead of two separate devices I'm using a stereo headphone that can be used for online gaming, listening to music, and talking on the phone/Skype. I can hear sounds just fine, it's only the microphone that's not picking up my voice. I tried the microphone jacks in both front & back of my computer and neither one are working.
