    Headset microphone

    I would like to run a software where I'm supposed to use a headset and need
    to hear what I'm saying in the microphone in the headphones.
    The microphone is working, and so are the headphones, but I can't get the
    feedback.
    This is easyto solve in XP, but I can't find out how to do it in XP.

    Control Panel > Sound > Levels tab

    Do you see the speaker at the end of the volume scale? unmute it..

    The speaker is unmuted and everything seems to work (I can record and
    listen), but I can't get the sound from the mic directly to the earphones.

    Scan this ng for similar issues and their resolution a few weeks ago. I
    remember some but not the resolution.

    Re: Headset microphone

    I have researched this issue elsewhere for the vista OS. I've read that you can go to Control Panel>Sound>Recording tab> right click the main box > show disabled components> (apply and then perhaps restart the system, return to the recording tab) > enable 'mix out' or similar component name.

    Others have said this works for them, as for myself, I still do not see any new components to enable when I choose to display the disabled ones. Does anyone have any more ideas beyond this?
