    Try installing/running Everest Home Edition to first make sure
    - Your computer finds and identifies the device
    - Verify which driver is loaded

    You can then report back with the info including driver info.

    Have you tried going to Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devives --> Voice Tab to configure and test your sound hardware. Make sure you have the mic plugged in to the right port... sometimes it's kinda tough to see which is which.
