Hey there!

I have been using speakers with my PC(Windows Xp) which works fine. Now I wanted to talk to my friends online so I tried to plug in my headset with attached microphone. I can hear fine on the headset(listen to music hear sounds on theweb etc.) but I can't hear my voice or use my microphone for talking to people.

My headset has 2 jacks which I have plugged into 2 sockets at the back of the harddrive.

I tried using sound recorder but its not taking any input means i can't hear any voice on playback.I have done the microphone configuration. Please help me, I can't figure it out. Microphone is working well on my friends PC.Thanks XX
