There are many different types of microphones. I didn't look for yours (you should have provided a link to it) so maybe it is the wrong type for your computer.

You show an ASCII mess instead of a clear schematic of the "stereo" jack of your computer. The stereo jack might be for a line-level signal because a microphone is mono not stereo and needs a preamplifier.
