Hey, recently my headset's microphone isn't working anymore. When it's just connected, it produces a quiet buzz all the times and suddenly when I talk on skype it records my voice badly, like robot-talking and my friends say they hear me for a moment and then it goes very low.. I thought it was an old microphone or sth and bought a new one..The problem still persists...Hmm and I've noticed the buzz comes only when my microphone boost is on +30db, when it's on +20db. I've researched for this and it seems to be in some grounding or sth like that?? Or may it be some drivers?? Thanks in advance :)

EDIT: I tried them on my sister'slaptop and they both worked fine.. so i,m back to the grounding issue.. How can i remove it? It's just weird that this hasn't occured to me at all and now it's constant...

EDIT 2: Fixed it, seems there was a problem in microphone boost. The +30db boost was the problem... it needs to be lower, like 20+
