Try looking under the sound and audio devices, in the control panel, and you may find that the microphone is muted.
Is everything plugged into the PC correctly, as most have seperate sockets for output/speakers and input/microphone.

i have my speakers plugged into the green and pink sockets how do i check if my mic is muted

Untick the box then it should work

Double click on your Volume icon in the Task Bar.

You may also have inadvertently disabled sound in a program such as WMP9 or have the mixer sliders at the bottom rather than the top.
