Yep… I am struggling with my new laptop (see a previous post) to try and do the podcast using it. Turns out it has a Realtek HD sound card that is proving problematic. I am working on it… if nothing else, I will get a podcast out soon with my old setup. But I gotta try a few things first. By the way, I have already dumped Vista… yeeesh, what a junker Vista is! Sigh. I have installed XP Pro and I have found the drivers for the notebook. But, it has been slow.
