well you just cant plug the microphone in and think it will just work

you will need an application to use the microphone, such as windows sound recorder

I dont know where it is located in ME although i would look in Entertainment under accessories

Well you could get an extension cable for the mic part.

If your headphones work in the socket on the speaker, they should work in the socket on the back, of the system - but they usually need plugging into the speaker output. You can get a double adapter for this.

Do you actually have a seperate headphone output - if you do, then perhaps this is afulty, or has it's volume turnd down, or is muted.

Please post what sound card you have, and someone may be able to expalin further.

How do you know it's not working if you cannot test it? as above you have to use as phonr or Voice recognition to know if it's working. You also need to set the sound properties so it will work also, by right clicking on the speaker icon in system tray, and open volume control. Go to Options for Microphone and recording
