Have you looked online to see if there are any drivers for your headset?

What is the make and model number of the headset?

When pluging the headset in plug the microphone in first then the earphone jack.

Has it ever worked? Have you tested with a different headset and mic?

Aside from hardware issues (ie: faulty headset, mic, or port), the most common cause are the audio drivers. Try reinstalling, updating, or downgrading the drivers.

Also, having said all of that, some Realtek chipsets and Win7 don't work well together. And 64bit has more issues than 32 bit.

I updated my driver and put the speaker configuration from 5.1(I have a 5.1 speakers) to stereo. It could now recognize both the microphone and the line in. I tested the microphone on Testing Your Headphones / Speakers and Microphone | English Speaking and it worked. But when I record something, I don't hear anything. Headphone is Melody(a Taiwanese company) EMSLR812M040. It does not require any driver.

Specifications
Microphone Sensivity: -58dB±2dB
Speaker Impedance: 320ohm±15%
Speaker Sensivity: 105dB±3dB
Speaker Frequency Response: 20-20,0

Note: I just copied and paste the specs, I don't understand anything from it.The small box to the right of the recording volume is +0.0dB, I can only change it to +10dB,+20dB or +30dB

Test with a different mic, or test that mic on another PC to verify if there is a PC or mic issue.
