Loud noise when using microphone.

So I recently got a new computer about 1 month ago and the microphone didn't seem to work. When I got it to work there was this really loud annoying sound that had beeps and echos in it, kind of hard to explain. I have turned off the option of "Listen to this device" in the audio control panel and haven't found any further fixed for this issue I wondered if anyone could help me :) The headset I use is the Logitech G230. Ty in advance.

You have done what was needed by turning off "listen to this device".

If this is not turned off the sound coming from the speakers is picked up by the microphone and then goes round and round usually referred to as feedback.
