Headset Microphone records noises straight from my computer

  1. I have been experiencing this problem for ages, and I haven't been able to find a single fix. Basically, when I play a youtube video or my friends speak in a call, my microphone will pick up that noise. It cant be an issue with my headset being too loud/close to the microphone because my microphone will still echo noise even when my headset is deafened. I get a temporary fix when I re-plug in my mic and headset, but that also doesn't work sometimes. I have tried pretty much every solution on the web and nothing works. In fact, I just plain can't. Examples of solutions I have tried:
    -turn off hot mic
    -mute microphone in speaker settings
    -a lot of other things which I cannot recall off the top of my head
    If someone can give me an answer to this issue, I will be forever grateful. Thank you in advance.

    Sorry, not enough info to make any definitive suggestion. Per Microsoft:

    " Fix sound problems in Windows 10
    • Run the audio troubleshooter
    • Fix your audio driver
    • Check cables, volume
    • Set default device
    • Turn off Audio Enhancements
    • Try different audio formats
    • Restart to apply installed updates
    • If you have no sound after installing updates
    • For help fixing audio or sound problems, try the audio troubleshooter. It might be able to fix audio problems automatically.
    • To run the troubleshooter: select the Start Windows logo Start button button, type audio troubleshooter in the search box, select Find and fix audio playback problems from the list of results"
