How to enable hearing my Microphone thorugh my speakers in Vista?

So i have a Laptop with integrated sound. I have a Microphone and a Headphone socket. I connected an external audio source to the microphone. I can record the source using Sound Recorder so the plug works and is configured, but I cannot hear the source through my headphones or built in speakers - so no live playback of the microphone input.

This has nothing to do with Vista - many oem sound drivers (esp. a lot of "business" laptops) do have this option disabled. Sometimes there are "hacked" sound drivers available.

Depending on the machine, the audio driver (if you have installed it rather than using Vista's) might give a suitable option. See if you can find the manufacturer audio driver.
