Microphone issues

  1. Hello.

    I've had my comp for about 2 years , a friend at IT warehouse set it up for me.
    A few months ago i bought a new headset for 140 dollars , it has worked perfect up until a week or so ago.

    I got a new computer desk and moved my computer to the other side of the room.
    I turned it on all worked fine , except when i went on teamspeak it wasn't working , it just makes a loud fuzzing noise , like it captures the first bit of sound it hears and repeats it over and over.

    My brothers friend came over and fiddled around with things , he said it may be a problem with my sound card cause we have tried a few other microphones.

    Can anyone help me out here , i love using my microphone for teamspeak etc.
    Incase it matters .. some info about my comp off xfire

    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.6GHz
    Memory: 1024MB RAM
    Hard Drive: 160 GB
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
    Monitor: Plug and Play Monitor

    Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254)

    Thanks.

    If you are using on-board sound, try installing a PCI sound card and see if the sound returns to normal
