Yes!! I found out what it was:
I recommend the following, in order:
1. Make sure the microphone is fully plugged in. I make this mistake all the time. Also, make sure it's plugged into the correct port (pink), and that a second pink port on your PC isn't occupied (on many occasions, my mic, which was plugged into the back, stopped working when I plugged my headphones into the front. They 'overrode' the rear ports).
2. Make sure the software you're using, be it audacity or teamspeak or google voice, has the proper microphone volume settings and check for push-to-talk settings as well.
3. Check in your volume properties (bottom right-hand corner) if the proper microphone is selected (should be called "jack mic" or something the like), and if it is selected, make sure the volume is set.
4. If a second computer is easily at hand, check to see if the microphone works on that one.
Failing all of this, see if a second microphone works on your trouble computer. If so, there is a problem with your microphone. If no red flags have been thrown up by performing this whole list... do tell
