    Your mic input on the computer is not a balanced input. You will either need to build a custom cable or use/borrow an interface to get the audio into whatever program you use (I happen to use Audition 3.01 and Reaper primarily myself). Your mic input from within the control panel in very rare cases will have some settings which may allow it to function more like a TRS line input. In that case you would just need a cable going from 1.8" mini TRS plug to two RCA mono plugs. What is the jack on the guitar amp? XLR or TRS or is it RCA phono?
