Question Sound Beeping Noise - Troubleshooting

Sep 17, 2020

Can you please help me troubleshoot this sound beeping (static) noise which has been around since I bought my pc back in February. This sound is something similar to hearing your own "open mic" in your headsets, but without saying anything, it's a "windy", "beeping", "static" annoying sound - this is the best I can describe it :).

My PC Hardware configuration as follows:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6GHz box
Motherboard AsROCK B450 PRO4
Video Card - MSI GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER VENTUS GP OC 8GB GDDR6 256-bit
Memory - HyperX Predator Black 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 Dual Channel Kit
SSD Kingston A2000 250GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 2280
Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SATA-III 2.5 inch
Power Supply - Seasonic Focus GX, 80+ Gold, 650W
Headsets - HyperX Cloud Gaming II
Case - SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB

What I tried
  • Reinstalling Drivers (it's weird that I have a Realtek Audio and LC24RG50 High Definition Audio in my Playback Devices, but I use Realtek)
  • Using both front and back inputs for me headsets
  • Lowering Microphone Volume from Recording Devices
  • Changed "Default Beep" to None
  • Went to Microphone Properties - Advanced and selected 2 Channel 16 Bit 48000 HZ
It was not bothering me too much but recently I tried screen recording and even when I screen record, you can hear it on the recording itself, which is very annoying.

Appreciate you time and advice,

Thank you,

Thanks for your reply Scout!

Yes - did try the Headset in another system, it is not on, the sound is crisp clear, so it is not the headset.

Yes - changed the "Microphone Level" from 100 to 12 and Microphone boots is on 0
