Trying to get a simple headset working with my (otherwise functional) Dell Dimension 9200 has led me to the hell I'm in now: no sound, scouring 2 year old message board posts for dodgy links to poorly labeled sigmatel drivers. Horror awaits inside! [more inside]

In Windows Vista, under playback devices, I selected "Don't use this device" for the default audio device. Now that device has entirely vanished, and I can't get it back. [more inside]

A friend had a question I was uncertain about... is there a way on a laptop running Vista -- short of having two sound cards -- where you can have Ventrillo voice chat through any kind of headphones, while at the same time having entirely seperate streaming radio playing to speakers through the audio out port on the laptop?
She's open to any kind of headphones or any streaming audio software which would support this. Failing this... is there a good, simple, ideally non-invasive workaround to add a second sound card to a laptop?

I'm using Audacity to record audio from various software on my laptop, but it's grabbing info from my microphone instead of my speakers. How do I fix this?! [more inside]
