    i have the same problem on hp compaq 6715b. I've been tweaking windows and searching google for 24 hrs now, and i'm left under the impression that soundmax HDA (realtek HDA in your case) just doesn't support hardware mic monitoring. I'd venture 3rd party software is the solution but haven't been able to find anything useful. SOMEONE PLEEEASE HEELP ASAP

    I've spoken with a hardware geek at university and he claims that high-definition does not support hardware microphone monitor. Hence, if you wanna hear your voice as you speak/sing, you have to buy a pre-amp of some sort.
    That sucks doesnt it

    My cousin uses these for recording, playing, whatever it is he does. I'm not into music, so I asked him for you.


    These are free btw

    Well it kinda seems you need a real-time processer to make this work. Haven't tried Protools but Audacity isn't the deal. Amplitube is kinda working, though. Haven't been able to tune it well yet. It needs a lot of processing power and physical memory - you'd do well with at least 2g ram and a turion 64 x2 for example.
    Still, im convinced a hardware pre-amp is the only real solution to the problem. Amptitude has a slight 100 msec delay and it is very annoying. And it's the best i've been able to find after days of googling.
