    ..Makes me unable to use it :/.
    Like, even when my mic is unplugged, all sound on my PC will play through my mic.
    I use Realtek HD Audio Manager.

    Unplug it. It sounds like you may have plugged it into the wrong jack.

    Please help me understand the set-up, you have speakers, how many jacks do they require?

    you have a mic, external to your PC, and your sound plays through it, which usually means it's in the wrong jack.

    I'm guessing you've tried moving your speakers to the jacks on the back of your PC, right?

    Haven't tried moving the speakers.
    I am very thankfull your helping me.
    My speakers require two jacks, but when im on headset, obviously i plug them out, and puts in mic and headphone jack.
    On Realtek HD i put the setting on Headphone, Headphone on headphone jack, and mic in on the mic.
    I went on Skype Echo test, talking, and putting on music sometimes, then i tried changing jacks but still no result.

    Hmm, I only remember having the problem in XP when I put the mic plug in the wrong jack.

    Try going into your recording options when you righ click ont he speaker in the lower right corner of the screen and mute the stereo mixer under recording.

    I found the solution here :
