Hi - I'm new to this and also I'm over sixty, so I'm a bit slow. I have just bought a Logitech USB webcam with embedded microphone.
Immediately I plug in the cam a get intermittent sound problems: these can happen in any application, such as mp3 playback with Windows and Nero Mediaplayers (creaking/groaning sounds) to basic computer games (loud noises like rushing water). They also happen if I turn up the volume from the icon in the taskbar. My question is, is this a sound card issue, as the webcam is new and I was having similar problems with an independent microphone plugged directly into the motherboard.
