All external devices whether plug-n-play or otherwise need appropriate 'driver' of the operating system. Generally these drivers are a part of the operating system like Windows XP ir Wnidows 7. In your case it seems that the driver for that particular make and model of headphones is not installed in Windows 7 and hence the problem.

Probably you will have to buy new headphones compatible with Windows 7. To varify the Mic problem, you may check your headphones with another computer using Windows 7 for Mic to ensure you have a complete version of Windows & installed in your computer before making a new purchase.
