  1. I am running xp on a p4 3ghz intel motherboard with 512 ram. When on yahoo voice i can not use a VOIP USB phone because the listening party can hear me with a thin hum accompanied with my voice. The voice is heard but with a hum. it doesnot happen with a normal microphone. It also doesnt happen when i use it on my low end laptop.
    what could be the problem.

    this is caused by bad grounding and/or RF interference.
