Does the old one still work?

Presumably you don't know the make or model of the new microphone, the operating system that you are using or any other relevant information that might aid in securing a solution?

If you are using it for Skype you have to, contrary to belief, Mute both the Playback and Record sections of the Volume Control's panel.

If you are using XP check out the relevant guide for Classic or XP Style modes:

Could that be why the old Mic did not work?

Check the old one out first. Maybe. Just maybe. You could get a refund on the new one if the old one does work.
