Need help with my headset

So I used to play console and I only have a xbox headset. My new pc has a headphone and microphone port. The built in mic works on my laptop, phone but not my pc. I don't understand.

Phones and laptops usually only have one 4-position port just like an Xbox controller. This type of port can listen to audio and transmit audio at the same time while the ones on the PC are separated into two separate ports called 3-position ports. There are adapters out there like this one but I've never used one myself.
