the microphone may be too close to the speakers and the magnets in the speakers are causing the microphone to feedback.

try moving the microphone further away from the speakers if at all possible.

I think there is a setting under volume control that you can disable the speakers while using the microphone, though can't remember what it is, and unfortunately don't have volume control on this PC.

hopefully someone else can advise you on this setting.

This definitley sounds like feedback to me, one of the easiest ways to avoid this is to turn the speakers down or invest in an earphone/mike combination.

Feedback occurs when the signal fron your speakers is fed back into your mike and then back into the speakers creating a perpetual loop, resulting in a high pitched wail.

Also mike placement will help unfortunatley, computer mikes are pretty omni-directional so the easiest solution is lower your volume level.

ok, at home now, and can see the controls

click start -> programs -> accessories -> entertainment -> volume control

and if Mic isn't shown, click on options then properties and in the box that says show the following volume controls, ensure the checkbox next to the entry for mic is ticked, then click ok.
this should then show mic on the panel.

place a tick in the mute box under the mic entry, this will stop the feedback, but won't stop you being able to utilise the mic.  or at least it doesn't on my system.
