First let's checkout your sound card and make sure it's working properly, on your desktop right click my computer and select properties go to device manager and go to your sound card, if there is no warning signs, right click your sound card and it will tell you if it's working properly, if not, upgrade your driver or you might have a bad card, try a new sound card and hook up your mic.
