Headphones work but mic won't?

My roommate's computer is leaving us both stumped. He has a set of headphones (a $25 pair from Best Buy), and they have a mic attached to them. His case is a rosewill Destroyer case so it has a mic/headphone jack on the front panel, but his mic won't work no matter where it is connected. He can crank the mic level to 100 and he's lucky to get 2 bars on the sound test page. It's impossible to hear him from my end, what suggestions do you have to fix this?

First, does the headset/mike combination work on another computer?

Second, do the back i/o panel jacks work?

Can't remember his mobo. I have mine memorized and I should have his memorized considering I built it. It's a micro mobo, that's all I remember. His mic works on my computer but not on his. His solution ended up being buying a logitech webcam that connects through USB. That works fine but he has to have his headphones on to avoid background noise, of course.

Jsc- yes his mic works on my computer, and the back i/o panel also doesn't work
