hey guys--new here, so thanks for letting me post...

well heres the problem--my headset broke-- so i thought i would buy a cool new one and i did--my old headset used the RCA plugs for audio and mic. -- the new one had a USB connection and came with no software-- the new hardware wizard found something so i installed it-- got the mic to configure-- but the headphones would not work-- i changed a port setting to the USB then it worked--but when i pulled the headset out-- the speakers wouldnt work-- so i got fed up with the USB headset and returned it--and purchased a decent set with RCA plugs like the old one--- well the headphones work fine enough when i plug them in (i have a Dell with a USB and RCA on the front-and the mic RCA in the back) but now i cant get my mic to work for nothing--ive gone to audio settings and speech settings and have it set to "line in" and ive tried to set it to "microphone" and i still cant get it to configure through the audio settings-- man what a pain in the butt! so then i went and removed the soundMAX software-thinking i could just re-install it and everything should go back the way it was--- no dice! well this brings me here to you--- any help is greatly appreciated--- i know im missing something i just cant figure it out!

thanks again...

Hi surf...Welcome to g2g!

One thing you might check...and you may have already, but it's kinda hard to tell from your post...is to make sure things are right in volume control. Doubleclick the little speaker icon by the clock and make sure that "Line in" is not muted and that the volume is set at least half way.
