Windows 7: Windows 7 No Longer Recognizes Mic / Skype Audio Issue

Windows 7 No Longer Recognizes Mic / Skype Audio Issue

So this is a two in one problem. I know most people tend to have this issue but I couldn't find a fix that would work for me.

Basically, I had a monitor for a while that had built in speakers. It broke. So I bought one that didn't and just used my Urbanears headphones that I used to use for my phone. Audio worked fine forever, mic worked fine as well. I don't have a webcam but I was able to receive video calls too. Then I updated Skype and now Skype cannot recognize my sound card, it says I have no microphone installed either.

I check my system's audio devices and when the headphones are plugged into the right jack on the front of my tower, the sound works. Unplug it and put it in the left, then the sound is gone but the mic registers as being plugged in. This never used to happen. I'm not sure what happened but I really need to find a fix to it.

Can anyone help?
