Try updating your drivers
Windows 7 does not like certain Microphones, i have a recording mic that has no drivers that support Windows 7 so i cannot use it. Try buying just a cheap one from newegg or ebuyer that does not require a specific driver or uses a generic driver or none at all, it's the only way i found to get around it.
