Microphone input jack doesn't work

I have a 

Y50-70 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80DT

and the input jack doesn't seem to work. I have tried different microphones, and sending an analog signal from a recorder's output without any luck. The onboard microphone works fine as does my headphone jack. The Realtech software doesn't seem to have many options. I am running Windows 10 64bit. 

Is there any way I can test if the jack is working at all? 

Thanks!

Re: Microphone input jack doesn't work

Thank you,  Adriel. I didn't realize the headphone jack and the microphone jack were the same. I was plugging my microphone into the digital input jack. No wonder it didn't work. I will try again using the correct input and I'm sure it will work now. If not, I'll let you know.  Thank you again.
