My computer case has one combined headphone/mic port and I have it plugged into an old Audigy RX sound card. The headphones work fine but the mic doesn't work on the front panel. The mic works alright when plugged into the back but the modmic cable is much too short for that. Is there a setting I should be changing in Windows? The case is a Lancool 215.

to my knowledge you would need a male minijack to 2 female minijack splitter

Something like this:
