Have you tried opening volume control from the task bar icon and checking if "microphone" section is on mute?

Wait... So who is hearing the loud background noises? You, or your friends?

Muting the microphone still allows the other person to hear you; it just prevents you from hearing yourself speak on your own computer.

Hmm... This problem seems to be widespread among many Skype users (including me).

The only cause that I can think of is your microphone sensitivity, as it might cause the microphone to pick up noises other than your own voice. If turning that down doesn't help, you can go to the Skype website and submit a support request Here. Based on your description of the problem, I couldn't find any solutions to the issue in Skype's help knowledgebase, but you can check for an answer there if you want to. I hope this will help you!

When I mentioned the prevalence of your issue among other Skype users, I meant that other users are just in the same situation because they're experiencing the same sound card/microphone/whatever it is that's wrong issues. Even then, the Skype website's help section might be able to help you solve the problem.

Try to toy around with the microphone's sensitivity. The fact that you encounter the same problem in other programs only supports the idea that the microphone sensitivity is too high. To adjust it, go to control panel> sounds and audio devices> "voice" tab> Test Hardware... You might have done this already, but if you haven't gone through this procedure, just try it to test and adjust your microphone's sensitivity level until it reaches a point that is best for you, or at least until all that can be heard is your voice.

You could always try posting again, as it is very likely that you'll get better help from a staff member or something. I'm sure someone will know. Sorry I couldn't help ya.

Once again, try to repost this same topic so that someone can help you.
