So when I connect my headset into the headphone jack, the mic doesn't work, it shows it, but doesn't use it. When it make it default it doesn't work. Even connecting it into the "mic jack" doesn't work. I have to connect an external mic to voice chat. Please help!

Headphones can have a single cable with 4 poles on it, or dual cables for mic and the audio which are 3 poles (count the segments on the connector). If it works on another system with the same audio jacks types, then test the mic input on the PC with another mic.
