Microphone isn't working properly

My microphone stopped working properly, but it was working fine last time I used it which could have only been a few weeks ago. When I open sound recorder I can hear my voice, although a bit quiet, but I get alot of static and buzz background noise. I can even just sit there not making a sound and record a file, and when I play it I hear a consistent staticy buzz noise.

I have checked volume control and everything is fine, microphone is checked etc. I have tried adjusting the volumes of balance, wave, SW Synth etc but didn't get much out of it. I have also tried doing the test hardware thing under Control Panal's Sound Speech and Audio Devices and that didn't fix the problem.

Oh, and I use Intel® Integrated Audio as my default sound playback/recording device, thought that might be important info.

Any help is appreciated.

I think it is more likely to be the microphone itself than the computer with static noise but you will need to use another microphone to be sure, can you borrow one off someone

Hi. try turning the Mic volume down. This should stop any feedback given by it.

I'm assuming that this is external. Have you tried plugging it into another computer?
