Audio Input Jack?

Hi! I bought this laptop a little over a year ago, and I have an external microphone I use on occasion. I've tried connecting it to my laptop, but it won't recognize it as a microphone. It keeps trying to suggest it's headphones. I'm wondering if it isn't actually a combined input/output jack like I was told. It's strange, because my headphones have a microphone as well, and my laptop is more than happy to recognize that as a valid microphone, but I can't use my actual nice quality mic.
