Ok, so this mic has worked for a while now. This has happened once before for like 5 minutes, and then cleared itself up. Now, what happens is, that when I use the mic, the only things it records is sound coming from the speakers. It does not record sound that is not coming from the speakers at all. It hasn't cleared up yet. When I use the voice test in the control panel, I get a weird, echoing sound that is pretty painful to the ears. Any idea what's wrong? The mic works ona different PC and it is plugged in correctly. I think the problem might be the sound card, which is a Realtek onboard one. It records sound from the speakers even if one isn't plugged in.

I use XP. I found the problem. Under the voice recording control, there was this option to record "Stereo Mix". I disabled it (it was enabled) and now my mic works perfectly. There's a bit of static, but that is how it was before.

If anyone has this issue, be sure to check that out.

I was going to suggest what you have just said but I'm glad to see that you fixed it.

That's funny. We hadn't been able to record since we got our new computer. I checked this, and it works.

Yes, thanks for the post.
Looking for the other side of my brain, have you seen it?
