Hi All,

All of a sudden my external microphone has considerable static when I record audio or use say skype. The inbuilt mic works fine with no static. I believe that windows completed an update which may have corrupted the audio files, so I reinstall the audio files and updated the bios. However still no luck with getting rid of the static.

I have also tried another headset and its has the same problem, which works perfectly fine on my desktop.

Any help would be appreicated.

You might pull the plug out of the computer a few times and or twist the plug around a little.  The contacts on earphone/mic jacks tend to get a little corrosion or film on them causing poor connections.  There is also a contact in the jack which opens the circuit to the built in mic that does the same.  Just a thought.
