Loopback for Sound card cal.

My new laptop has only one 1/8" port for connecting a headset with a mic. I am trying to find a way to perform the sound card calibration but I haven't found a way to make a loopback cable. I have tried making my own by taking an old 1/8" plug and shorting one of the output wires to the mic input wire which then causes my soundcard to disable the mic input. Has anybody else found a way to do the sound card calibration when your computer only have the one port?

1. Is there no HDMI output?

2. Does the plug on your headset look like this?
