Win7 x64 bit isn't detecting Mic for my headphones

Hello Everyone
I have Sound Plaster PCIe Xtreme Audio sound card integrated with MSI P6N Diamond motherboard and I installed all of its latest drivers but It seems I can't make Mic work
Win7 detects Speakers only which is working just fine but it doesn't detect my Mic
I also changed the FlexiJack Mode to Microphone but still my mic isn't working
I'm using Headphones (Gamecom Headphones which is working just fine without any problem)
What should I do to make Mic works?

is your mic a part of a camara or the headphones?

Stupid question maybe, but could they be broken?

Did you install ALL your graphics card drivers (including audio from the graphic card's manufacturer's website) and your motherboard driver for audio (perhaps from the motherboard's manufacturer's website)?

I'll need you to do this: Fill out your system specs (this tool may help you out a great deal).

Let me know what you have done in your next post. There are also windows and audio driver settings that you can change, and perhaps its just not enabled. I'll tell you more after you get back to me with the above information

I have a Gameconn headset as well and the option for the microphone can sometimes for whatever reason be disabled by software such as Skype. Which software are you using the mic for, i.e. Steam, Skype, Vent etc from this we will be able to track down wether they can pick your mic up which will then point us towards a hardware or software relatred problem. Thank you

first its a spelling mistake, no big deal

and secondly have you tried both microphone jacks on your PC or do you only have the front one?

I have only one Microphone FP
but there are two choices in Windows Recording Devices
Microphone (this appears to be detected when I unplug the mic of the headphones but disappears when I plug it don't know why)
Microphone FP

From microsoft:

After you've plugged a microphone into a microphone jack on your computer and turned it on (if the microphone has an on button), follow these steps.
  1. Open Sound by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type sound, and then click Sound.
  2. Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.
(Optional) To listen to microphone sounds through your speakers or headphones, click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click OK.

And back to me:
Now when you make a loud noise, can you see the green bar light up (I think you should see it on the general tab)? Let me know if you need me to clarify

My friend thanks for all that but the problem is that Win 7 in Recording Devices Tap says Microphone is Unplugged when it is plugged it's like it is not detecting any recording devices I don't know if it is because I changed to Win 7 from Win XP or is it broken (Speakers work but not mic how is that ?)
Can anyone tell me ?
