Windows 7: Use external speakers in place of headphone and Laptop's microphone

Use external speakers in place of headphone and Laptop's microphone

Hello,

I have Dell Inspiron N4050 Laptop with Integrated Webcam and running Windows 7 Ultimate edition - 64 bit..
I normally call using Gmail's Call phone service. I want to setup so that I can use Internal microphone in laptop to transmit my voice and hear the incoming call voice using external speakers.

**** I normally keep external speakers connected to laptop for listening to music, but whenever I have to make a call, I have to remove the speaker cables and connect headphone cables in audio jack. So, I am looking up for solution to do make audio/video calls using external speakers and without needing to connect headphones to transmit my voice to caller.

Could you help me with the setup please?
Thanks a lot!

Short answer, no. Because of the feedback problems, most users use a separate combination headset/mic to minimize feedback problems. Otherwise you will have to manually change things each time you speak or listen.

Fireberd, I think you're a little quick to dismiss this. Lemme try and understand the question a little bit more. You want to use the speakers on your laptop to play music and what have you, while also being able to have a headset plugged in? If that's so, you can use the laptop speakers and your headphones as separate audio devices by double clicking the red speaker in the right side of your task bar, going to device advanced settings, and choosing that option.
