Help w/ Audio

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion HPE (h8-1380t)
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)




I am a newbie using an HP Pavillion HPE (h8-1380t) running under Windows 7 Pro (64 bit).


On the top of the PC, near the front, there is an input for a headphone and an input for a microphone. I use these two inputs for a combined headphone/microphone. And, it works well.


On the back panel, there are six audio inputs:



Rear speaker out

Side speaker out




I want to install a stand alone microphone and stand-alone speakers for recording MS Power Point presentations. I have not bought the microphone yet but I do have a set of speakers (Altec Lansing BXR1220) that has a single male plug plus a USB connection for power.




1) What type of microphone do I buy?

2) Where do I plug it in?




3) Where do I plug in the Altec Lansing speakers?




4) How do I configure Windows?


Thank you!
