My external mic works on my laptop but I get terrible feedback on my speakers and headphones. What am I doing wrong? I have Realtek sound card.

Do you have the latest drivers installed for the sound card? If not, head to the laptop manufacturer's support site to get it and see if that helps the situation out at all.

Perhaps it is an issue with the external mic. If you have any other external mics laying around you could try that and see if the same issues persist. If they do not, then chances are it is the mic. If not, it may be worthwhile to try and get in touch with Dell support if your laptop is still under warranty.
