When I talk into my microphone while there are no programs using it I can hear myself in the headphones. When I try to record myself using a program it doesn't record any audio. I am using Windows 7 and a Cosonic headset. It works on my brother's PC but not on mine, I can't seem to any mic response from my PC. The program doesn't require to locate the input device. I'm trying to use it on MSN & the website
