loud background noise on computer sound syste

Specs: Windows Vista, 200 G/2G
I use Skype a lot and sometimes when I try a call I am getting very loud background noise on the computer microphone. If I reboot the computer and try again the background noise is usually gone. Sometimes it is not there to start with so I don't have to reboot. The background noise is there is I am using the computer microphone, a plug in microphone or a headset. The noise is into the red zone on the microphone dial.

Check your MIC connections, and the connectors ON the PC to see if they're in good shape, not cracked/damaged or too loose. You may have to adjust your MIC levels in Vista:

And check your Sound settings in Skype:

Just another stupid saying...

Thanks for the feedback. I have checked the settings, the connection is ok but I will try them again and post the result.
