Default using speakers to amplify mic

i need to use my laptop speakers to amplify voice imput from my mic. i have a dell inspiron e1505. i tested the mic over and over, and it works fine. i even used sound recorder to make sure the computer was detecting the mic, and it recorded flawlessly. how do you make my internal speakers playback audio in real time as i speak into the mic?

Be carefull though, you have a big chance of creating so called feedback. This means that your mic is amplifying sound which is generated by your speakers, which will be amplyfied again (do you see the repetition?) resulting a very painfull high pitched loud sound you often hear when someone moves a mic to close to the speaker used to amplify the mic.

But yeah, unmute the volume in the volume settings windows (the little speaker in your quicklaunch bar will launch it)
