    I have two laptops running windows 8, Asus AO756-2626 and HP dm4-3099se. Internal mic works on both. I have two computer mics and one professional type that needs an adapter for the jack. When I insert either mics, nothing happens on either laptops. The external mic in the sound settings is greyed out and says currently unavailable.

    It could either be that the mics you want to use are not compatible or the jack is dead. Unfortunately if it is the latter, and you are using a laptop there isn't much you can do, unless your headphone jack can double as a mic jack.
