I'm using an A4tech headset. During voice chats I don't hear anything on my side, but the person I'm talking to could hear static noise in the background. I've tried using another headset, Logitech, but same thing happens. The A4tech is about 3 years old, and Logitech is refurbished. Not the best hardware. Haha.

But anyway, I don't know whether I should buy a new headset, or change some hardware in my laptop.

Dell Inspiron E1405
Genuine Intel®
T2300 @ 1.66GHz
0.99GB RAM
Windows XP Media Center Edition
Version 2002, Service Pack 3

Any kind of input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Its your microphone that is creating porblem, so you wont hear any static. But the person on the other end.
One way to find out, is to record your own voice and then listen it back.

Check if your mic's cable is plugged in properly. If nothing else works, try a new headphone.

I did what you suggested, and I could hear static. I guess the problem's with my headset after all. Dang. I'd have to buy a new one. Hehe.

Thanks!! I guess this is problem solved. (^_^)
