Just looking for PA fix

Anyone know of a way to plug in a mike and use the internal laptop speakers as a PA?

You can set the input as a loopback device to the output, but you might end up with a good bit of latency. Don't know if Windows can do that built in, but I'm sure there's a program that will do that.

Why on earth do you want to do that?

Not only will there be mic feedback, but one will also have to deal with the general low power of laptop speakers. Might be fine for a small room but generally most laptop speakers are underpowered for use in a large room and are worthless in an auditorium or large open space.

Just plug in the microphone and enable "Listen to this device" in the audio properties (Windows 7).

As others said, built-in laptop speakers will be utterly useless as a PA. With external speakers you may get somewhat usable results.
