Hello again, guys! This time it's a microphone problem. So what happened was, I was trying to disable my web cam microphone because I can occasionally hear it. So I did, and now, I still hear it, and even when I'm not using a program that uses it, I can still hear it during 3 to 10 second intervals. During this time, I can hear myself tapping on the microphone, and near the microphone. For whatever reason, it also picks up my keyboard when I'm typing something like this. When I mute the speakers/headphones, it stops. It also happens with a headset mic that uses a microphone jack. It is very annoying, especially when playing competitive games. The game I was trying to play was Project Reality, a Battlefield 2 mod. I already disabled my microphone via control panel.

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 bit

Not sure what my sound card is, if it is necessary , I'll post it ASAP. Thanks in Advance!

My video card is ATI Mobility Radeom HD 4250, if that is needed.

It seems like microphone playback is turned on. Go to the application that controls your sound card, find microphone playback and mute it, it should be under "Mixer".
