Annoying noise or buzz noise in my PC microphone

I'm currently using my headset as usual. I frequently use Skype and yahoo messenger to make video calls to my mom over the internet. She's in LA California. Then one day she complained of a buzzing noise over her headset. Just found out that the culprit was my microphone.

But it sounds clear when I passively hear it but when I tried to record it produced that noise.Is it due to my microphone or my soundcard?

your microphone may be out of order, try the same microphone on other PC if you can. Also check your sound card by re installing your sound driver.

the easiest option to check the working of your microphone is by checking your microphone on some other PC, if you are facing the same problem of noise, it is dead sure that your microphone is out of order and you can replace it or repair if possible.

you can also check the volume mixer settings of your PC by right clicking on your volume bar and select volume mixer or properties.

The mic you're using might have a bad connection, or it might not be designed for use on a computer mic input.

Replacing the mic with a new one should fix a bad connection, if that's the issue.

Also, if you're using a mic designed for a cassette tape recorder, replace it with it a "multimedia" or "PC" or "computer" mic instead. A "cassette" mic would be a dynamic mic, which is prone to AC hum via EMI (electromagnetic interference), and it's also wired for a mono mic jack (which will short out one channel, I believe the right channel). A mic designed for a computer is a phantom-powered electret mic (relatively immune to EMI pickup) wired for a stereo jack (though actually mono, it would use a stereo plug and feed both channels).
