Welcome!

How do you know the mics don't work? Do the greens bars show up to the right of the device in Sound when there is input?

Right-click on Microphone and select Properties. What are the levels set to?

Take your mic boost to +20 dB and see if you get signal then. You can also listen to your output through your speakers and see if you hear anything.
