After trying all of the solutions that have been offered for this extremely common problem of losing sound, I purchased USB powered speakers...and they work great.
Today I purchased a USB microphone and I can't seem to get that to work properly. Should this microphone work without the internal sound working properly?

Correct, microphone it totaly seperate and doesn't depend on sound.
Check your own devices or Sound panel window and under the Recording tab make sure your microphone is listed and make sure it's the default Recording device. You can rightclick it and set as default.

Thanks for the reply c0rnel. It does not show up on the recording tab and there is not an option to browse for it.
It does show up, however, in the device manager folder.
