HP Pavilion p7-1235 Desktop Computer
Win 7 64 bit
I was having this problem, found a solution, thought I'd post it.
When I plug in my headset and mic on the front panel, then when I speak into the microphone I get my own voice (slightly delayed, about a half-second) right back in my ears in the headset. I had tried every configuration setting change I can find, both on the Windows control panel for sound settings, and also the Beats Audio control panel provided by HP. Couldn't get it to stop.
Finally... right-clicked on the little speaker icon on the task bar. Selected "Open Volume Mixer." Volume Mixer comes up. Set stereo mix setting to zero. Problem seems fixed, unless some other idiosyncracy pops up.

Glad to hear your solution worked. You mention you tried "every configuration setting".
Did this include unchecking "listen to this device"? under the Stereo mix properties "listen" tab.
Under the Sound recording tab, any device the system thinks is an "input" will be listed (microphone, Line in, Stereo mix, etc). Each "recording" device properties prompt has a "listen" tab, in which has a "listen to this device" option. If checked, will play whatever this device "records" and play it out of the audio device selected.
With the right combo of input and output device, feedback and delays will occur. Matter of fact the microphone listen tab states : If you connect a mcrophone, you may hear feedback. With this option unchecked, I tried everything an no feedback. Check it and I get an instant scifi movie sound track.
Just wondered if unchecking the "listen to this device" for every input source was included in your "tried every configuration" effort? Because unchecking this (for the right input device) instantly kills the feedback for me.
