Solved My mic will work and sometimes not

Specs: Windows 10
After I tested my mic on my friends pc, sometimes when I join a discord call or zoom meeting, the quality of my mic becomes bad and really loud. My fix for this problem Is unplugging the mic and plugging it back in. But I don't want to keep doing this. My mic is normal most of the time, but sometimes when I join a call it gets really loud and noisy. This problem also occurred when I plugged the mic into my friends pc.

My mic is the NEEWER NW-8000-usb

I'd be inclined to consider it's the mic itself. Condenser mics aren't that invulnerable; especially to being knocked or hit hard...

The actual capsule itself may well be the problem; or the usb port on the mic housing itself. To check the latter - blow some canned air into the connector, and maybe (using the pointed end of a tooth pick - or similar - NOTHING metallic) see it there any dust, fluff, muck in general inside the mic port itself?

Also bear in mind - according the manufacturer... - this mic requires an external phantom power source (48volts) if used with a laptop... See below. Is it being used/tested on laptops (only), or have you checked it a desktop system too?

It also appears to have a built-in amp (there's a "volume" control on the housing?) and possibly that bit of electronics is failing; or the actual "volume control" itself? Why they call it a volume control... surely level (or gain )control is more appropriate?

As you had told, this problem also occurred when you plugged in the mic into your friends pc,
so the problem seems with your mic. I will suggest you check your's friend mic on your pc too.
If they work fine, then replace your mic for better results.
