Great info but what sort of mic is it?

The Microphone should be plugged should go into the "Pink Socket".

In the bottom right hand corner "right click" on the little speaker and Open Volume Control.

Ensure that "Rear Pink In" Mute is "unchecked". Play with this volume control and test input, can you hear it now? You may also want to hit the Advanced button and select Microphone Boost.

Hope this helps.
