ayye, im tryin to make a lil recording studio in my room, i bought a mixing board, a condenser mic, etc, but when i hook tha mixer board up to my laptop via tha mic jack, all i get is a static like noise from the speakers/headphones, i thought it might be the mixer board so i returned it an got another one, but still had the same problem, also i i get like a clicking noise from the left speaker/left headphone even when the mixer is not hooked up...so my question is, do i need a new soundcard that is made for recording or is it the input jacks on the computer??

Are you using the onboard audio or do you have a separate Audio card installed?

Yup, that's what I mean.
Buy an audio card, there are lots of them out there.
Google Recording audio cards.

You'll find a bunch of them.
Pick the one that best suits your needs.

It Goes into a PCI Slot.

If you open you case, you'll see some White horizontal Slots.
You can put it in any one of them, normally you'd use the top one.
