Mic randomly turns to static after every few minutes

  1. I recently got a new motherboard and processor. Installed them fine w/o any problems. Haven't run into an error or anything yet. Got my USB ports and such opened fine, but I'm running into a really annoying issue now.

    I use Ventrilo to talk to friends, and 2-5 minutes through every session, they hear a very loud static come from my mic, like turning on an unsubscripted channel on TV and maxing the volume apparently. Whenever I leave Vent and come back, or change one Ventrilo setting, it fixes. I figured that it was Vent, so I used xFire's voice chat, and apparently it still does it there.

    My drivers are 'High Definition Realtek Audio Drivers' apparently, and I've tried two different kinds now that came on my motherboard disc, but the problem still exists. Tried another USB port and same thing.

    If anyone can help it would be appreciated.
