I am running ArmA II on a Gateway 6831FX laptop with a built-in mic. I am trying to get my USB microphone/headset to work instead for the in-game chat but I can't find a way to tell the game to use my USB mic instead of the laptop mic.

Any suggestions?

Usually pretty tough to do with any multi-mic set-up.
You really have to find the right Panel in Windows to make the swap happen.

Maybe something from here;

go into the windows audio settings - recording devices and set your USB headset as the default recording device.

that should work.

- right click on the Speaker icon next to your clock and select recording devices.
- right click on the usb microphone device and select "set as default device"

i cant really remember how it works in xp but i think:
- control panel/sounds and audio devices
- find the recording or input device. you should find the usb mic there.
