If i record in my compaq nx9500 after the recording if i play it it will give me some sound under the recording

If you're using the built in the mic that's feedback because laptop mics are low powered they have the gain boosted in Windows. Try using an external mic and check the setting on the volume settings for recording devices. (Right click the volume icon)

If it's a buzzing/squealing noise you're concerned about that might be "ground loop" usually caused by having the laptop plugged into the mains or less commonly having loads of cpu intensive applications running in the background.

Also if the laptop is on a hard surface make sure that it isn't vibrating because the mic sensitivity will pick it up and because of the gain boost it will be amplified.
Gain = Volume

Hope that helps

When I plug my earphones into the headphone jack, the sound still comes through the laptop speakers, not the earphones

Forgive if this is too simplistic, but 2 suggestions before digging into the laptop: Confirm that you are plugging into the headphone jack and not the mic jack. Second, try a different set of earphones - sometimes buds with a mic capability like for a cell phone don't respond the same as pure headset.

How to configure a headset with mic?

Headset will have two pins .plug the pin initially
The green pin should be plugged to speaker and the red pin to the mic.
In the volume button select the advance properties and increase the volume of mic .sometimes it may be in mute if so un mute it.
Ensure proper drivers are installed and mic is detected i the system.This can be seen from the sound devices option in control panel .
To check whether mic is working try to record using the sound recorder which is present in system

I have a compaq Presario F761us laptop with a Conexant sound card. I use to have a internal mike, but now only the external plug-in one shows up. How to I get the internal one to register again so I can...

if u mean to say u plugged in an external mic then internal's not workin, then its a simple sound setting game..

Look when u plug in an external mic, the internal one freezes...

Now go to Control Panel,
Select Sounds & Audio Devices
Now select Audio
As u select Audio,
U'll see a mic icon.. Expand the tab & select ur internal mic..
Now apply it & click ok..
Now check whether ur internal mic is working or not.. I guess it wil work..

If u like my post, please rate me up... I really need some good ratings...
Thanks !!!
