I had that issue.

This is why I moved to using a microphone with the USB interface. It sidesteps all the problems you see in integrated audion modems and more.

my problems

what my problem is is that i don't think my microphone is being recognized by my computer. if it did would it appear somewhere?

also what is causing the static and what can i do to fix it. i dont need to move to a USB microphone as my current one works perfectly on other computers. i just need to find the problem with mine

Your choice.

While you proved the mic is fine on other machines, this machine has some less than happy audio card. I wonder if you were hoping to avoid fixing the machine? All I can offer is how I fix this. I use the newer USB microphone since it avoids having to fix the hardware.

fixed maybe

never mind i somehow fixed it
taking the mic off the table and moving it away from the speakers.
i guess it was the vibration of the table or something lol
still a lil bit of static though
