Blue Yeti Advice on a Budget?

Hi everyone! I'm very new to recording and currently have a blue yeti microphone. I record grand piano and female vocals, and I know I should probably update to an actual interface and XLR mic with two large (or small, depending on the desired result) diaphragm mics for the piano, but that would mean changing my entire setup and shelling out a lot of cash.

Can't get Blue Icicle to work

Just got the blue icicle preamp. It's supposed to be plug and play, but I can't get it to work. Everything seems to have installed correctly, I didn't get any error messages. But even with the gain all the way up, there's no signal. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times as well as restarting my computer.

Blue Yeti to Asus Xonar STX

I'm using the Blue Yeti and I noticed a lot of hissing sound from the mic. I could use programs to filter it out, but I think it's better to solve the problem from the root. I have a good feeling the hissing sound is coming from feedback from the computer, it's plugged into the "crappy" RealTek one that's stock with most computers.
