Weird noises through headset microphone

This typically happens with 'Noise Reduction' circuitry. It is necessary to hold the mic within 1" to prevent that circuitry from deciding your voice is background noise.

In your case, since it was working before, there is the possibility the mic is failing or there is some support software on your computer that came with the mic that's controlling the volume.

So far I have not fixed the problem with my mic. My mic came with no software to download onto my pc. I use a set of Tritton AX Pro's (not the PC pro's) that plug into my integrated sound card. Could my sound card's mic port just have decided to die out of nowhere? Do you think getting a new sound card will fix the problem?

I don't want to spend a lot of money on a new sound card, but I think that the Fry's near my house has some I can get in the $40 range that support HD sound output (headset has 3 input jacks for pc)

Also, I have checked the mic volume settings on my pc. I use windows XP

First make sure you mic is plugged into the Red (Pink) Mic input jack. Use the one on the back of the computer for best results. Go to Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Audio/Sound Recording/ Make sure your mic is the one listed, or choose sol republic the drop down menu to make it so. Then go to the Volume button. Make sure the Volume is all the way up. Click the Advanced button. If there is a check box for Noisy Environment or Mic Boost, check that. Either of these will boost the volume by a few db's.
