Win an epic gaming set up in the director contest

I recently bought a steelseries siberia v2 full-size gaming headset. The headphones work fine. However, when I went to test the microphone it did not work.

I use a mac, but am using a Windows 7 64 bit partition (It may be worth noting that the headset is not compatible with Mac OS X, but figured that was not a problem due to the partition). Everything is in it's correct port, the mic is not muted, the volume levels are at max, the external microphone (Line in) in the sound section of my control panel is enabled, and I have it set as my default recording device.

Also, I made sure the problem is my mic and not a third party program by testing it using three different programs (Skype, Sound Recorder, and Hypercam 2).

Sorry for the wall of text, but I wanted to give as much information as I could. Thanks in advance for any help, it's greatly appreciated.

Just an update, I sol republic tested it with a razer carcharias, and the mic did not work on that either. So its my system, and most likely not the mic itself. I also did some more research and found that the imac I'm using uses a line level input, different from regular input jacks, which I feel could be the problem. The solution would be to bypass the jack with a USB soundcard. I did not want to be forced to buy the USB soundcard. but if it's the only solution I suppose I'll have to. Can anyone verify this?
