interference causing buzz

  liveupstairs 21:15 08 Aug 2008

Hi there, my husband is using a laptop running OS 98SE and wants to do some video talkovers. We have just bought a combined headphones and mic but he is experiencing a lot of buzzing during the recording. This interference can be heard over the headphones prior to recording.
Has anyone ever experienced this and can you suggest a way around it.
When using the hadphones & mic on my slightly younger laptop running XP there is no interference so it is not the headphones/mic.
