Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Headset Okay- Toshiba Satellite A210 running basic Vista. I bought a headset w/ microphone (setting up on Skype). Problem is I cannot figure out how to get the headset to work! I have found the sound, disabled the speakers and enabled the headset- no luck. When I plug in the headset, the speakers do not stop. Can anyone help?? Thanks Don
