    ok I have been here a few times and you guys are really helpful and nice,so I'd thought I'd thought Id ask.:cool:
    Ok so I have tried a mic before and I thought it was broken because Windows recognizes it as a microphone,but when I go right click on the volume control then recording devices,then I select my mic then I configure everything, then when I go to the listen tab,and check listen .Then select my speakers I can use my mic but it also makes a high pitch sound that sounds like nails on a chalk board and a weird echo,I have tried two different mics because I though the first one was broken so I bought a new one today and the same problem still occurs. I don't know what to do,so can some one help me ?

    My laptop is a Dell with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
    PS sorry for run ons and bad gamer,I have to go some where so Im in a rush.

    Hey there.

    Your input level and/or output level is too high for the mic.

    The high pitch sound is feedback from the sound looping out of your speakers and back into the mic...and then it does it again and again etc...

    Simply lower your levels so the feedback does not occur.
