I bought a cheapie 3 dollar lavalier mic from ebay, and I gotta be honest for the price it's absolutely amazing. Only problem is it doesn't work with my computer. When I plug it into my phone, it works fine and records audio normally, but when I plug it into my PC, it detects it as a microphone but can't pick up any sound from it except a constant static noise. The microphone has a 3.5mm jack connector, and 4 pins on it. I guess it is wired up differently than what my motherboard's 3.5mm audio-in jack needs, or it only accepts 3 pinned microphones. I'm pretty sure I need some kind of adapter and then it might work, but I don't know WHAT adapter. Could you help me?
Thanks

P.S.:I've used my compter with other microphones and it worked fine with those.
