Speakers (or maybe mic) humming

By stargazerr ·
When I try to record my voice or use a chat software like skype, the speakers that play back my voice start humming (as in a mechanical hum). I am guessing that this is a mic problem so I went and got me another headset. I used to use the Laptop's (Fujitsu Seimens AMILO Pro) mic before.

But getting another headset didn't help. HELP !!! Thanks in advance

You may be having a feedback problem. Try to make sure you aren't having a conflict with polarity and/or put more distance between your mic and speakers. You might also try turning the speakers away from pointing in the direction of where the mic is located. It won't take much. Also check the volume settings for both the speakers and the mic, especially if you are using remote speakers.

Double check the advanced tab on the volume
controls to be sure that the microphone
sensitivity is not in the boosted (+10 db)mode.
This would give you way too much gain.

Check the shielding on the cabbles, and move the cables away from the VGA cable and all other power cables. It is most propably picking up interferance from these sources.

Thanks Guys. Checked all these things. Interference, db boost. The hum is still there. It started when I was using skype to talk to a friend and then just got from bad to worse. I thought that the onboard mic on the laptop had stopped working so I went and bought a new headset. That didnt help though.

Star try using the built in items on IM and see if they work. If they do then it's an issue with Skype which is fairly old technology you might like to try Gismo as an alternative from
