Welcome to TSG!

You could only remove the hardware with a soldering iron. You did not do that.

Changing options should restore it, or simply download the appropriate drivrs from the laptop makers site.

Going to assume you are using an NT based windows OS...
If you think you removed hardware, you probably didnt...
Gonna start with the basics...
Go to your control panel and switch to classic view... Go to Sound and Audio Devices. Go to the audio tab, under sound recording go to volume, click options, click properties make sure "Microphone" is selected... press okay tick the box next to "select" under microphone...
Give us a yell if it is actually more complicated than this...
