Had the same problem, here is a list of things you should do:

  1. Update any drivers for your microphone/headset and update steam.
  2. Check that the microphone is set to default in the sound manager.
  3. Make sure in the steam settings that your microphone is turned all the way up.
  4. Check if your microphone is chosen in the steam sound manager.
  5. Check that a button is actually binded to your microphone.
  6. Restart steam and your computer
