Please forgive me, but I just purchased a new HP dual core computer. The system came with Vista, but I placed the program in a partition (hard drive) and installed Windows XP. When Gates & company REALLY work out the bugs I may install the program.

So far, everything is working fine. I've had some minor fixes, but everything is okay, with the exception of the speakers and mic. I receive wonderful sound through the desktop speakers, but I can hear a faint radio channel through the speaker. I don't know if it is two stations or one. Sometimes I hear English speaking people and sometimes Mexican speaking people. When I turn up the volume the voices go away (No, I'm not crazy and hearing things in my head). I can live with the speaker problem, but my mic is not working at all.

Does anyone have a possible solution?

Please understand that I'm no "computer geek" and I may have many questions.

Thanks in advance.

You have to set the Mic as the Default Mic by going to "Start" and "Control Panel." Click "Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices" then click "Voice." Find the "Audio Recording" section and select the new mic.
