Front mic port not working/shown in sounds

HI I have a AMD athlon(tm) 64 X2 dual core 5000+ 2.60GHz
Running Window 7 Service pack 1
which my son is using for his Steam but we are unable to get the mic to work.
We are using on board sound through the front jacks headphones(turtle beach X12) work but the mic is not working or showing up in sound i have also tried to use the rear jack with the same results.
Thanks for any help in advance

Is the mic part of the X12 USB connection, or is it separate and uses the 3.5mm audio plug to connect?

USB connections usually bypass the actual sound card.

The USB is to power the headphone and they wont work unless the USB is plugged in. There is two separate jacks pink for mic and green for sound.

Do you have the RealTek HD Audio driver installed or are you just using the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec? If you do not have the RealTek driver installed, that is the first step. Get the driver from Gigabyte (preferred) or alternate directly from RealTek.

What is displayed in the Sound Panel/Recording section? and what is set as default recording device? The Stereo Mix should be set, then whatever is plugged in will be heard.
