I am running XP on a Dell 1150 Inspiron Laptop. It has a Sigmatel C-Major soundcard. I have a working external MIC. (I use it frequently on my desktop). I cannot get any any audio from this mic on my laptop. I go into the CHECK HARDWARE feature and recite the whole ""i am testing my microphone to verify my voice is detected...." It shows the recording meter is detecting my voice and my voice shows on the recording meter, but I cannot hear anything out of the speakers or it will not record anywhere.

I went to the dell website and installed the latest drivers and still getting the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can post screen shots if needed

I have turned the volume up as high as possible. I can hear anything else out the speakers except the mic.

I went into the Recording Control. It has stereo mix or Microphone. I can only select one at a time. I have check marked each, and still the same. The advanced options gives me "microphone boost." Which i have check marked and still the same.

My control panel has a sigmatel audio icon, but it just has an option for battery power management, but nothing else.

just went to the Speech in control panel and changed the audio input device to SigmaTel Audio from "use preferred device" I even tried a new speech profile, where it asks you to say "I am using the Microphone Wizard, It is adjusting the volume of my microphone" The volume meter moves and detects my voice, but I cannot hear it through the speakers.

HELP!

Any way I can move this to audio help?
