Microphone NOT working , One jack port with Earbuds


I have an ASUS F550C with windows 7 installed , and I also have Realtk HD Audio driver installed.
So before I format my PC I used to be able to use my earbuds as Speakers and Microphone together because I have only one jack port for both. but now The microphone isn't working and I'm stuck with the built-in microphone but its quality is really bad ; I mean it's horrible. So can you please help me fix this? so I can be able to use both speakers and microphone of the earbuds.

Thanks a lot in advance !
