Sound output problem

  1. Hi. I have recently purchased a Samson G-Track (GM1U) USB Microphone. I have installed it and hooked it up to my computer in order to record vocal tracks and make podcasts. However, whenever I hook it up, my regular speakers stop functioning (Likewise, when I remove it, the regular speakers work again).

    I'd like to know if there is a way to have my speakers and Microphone work at the same time. Any help would be much appreciated. : ]

    (Just for note, my speakers are SB Audigy LS, which is a product of Creative Technologies Ltd., in the case that this is needed in order to find a solution)

    The only thing I suggest is to plug the mic in before your computer turns on.
    Basically it's just taking precedence over your sound

    Note: This still may not work, but worth a go

    I just tried that, and no cigar.

    Any other ideas?

    What is the color of the ring of your speakers audio output,your MIC's
    output as well as the headphone output? (if present).

    And what color of the ring of the output where your speakers go (plugged in to)?
    likewise with your MIC?

    does your speaker set plugged into the front panel audio output?
