Microphone not working in XP

I know this has probably been posted a million times, but I'm having trouble getting a brand new microphone to work.

The mic isn't muted, and it's been selected for both playback and recording. I've moved the volume slider all the way to max, and checked the box for 20db boost... Still no luck. I even made sure the mic's plugged into the proper jack. It's a brand new mic, too. Maybe someone can help.

OS: Windows XP Professional service pack 3
Sound Card: Soundblaster Audigy SE
Mic: HP Premium Stereo Headset
