External microphone trouble (Aspire R3-471T)

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option. 

 

I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?
