Microphone audio issue not letting me work or make money PLEASE help

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 2019
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Unless I can get this fixed, I will be forced to go into debt to buy another PC.  I am in tears trying to fix this.


In the last two months a hIgh-pitched whine has started when I record with my microphone. I have tried recording on another, non-HP system I borrowed, in the exact same location, and found NO NOISE WHATSOEVER.  I have isolated the issue to the Omen PC.


I have tried EVERYTHING short of trashing my PC - which is barely a year old. I am in tears. If not for an eviction moratorium in my state due to Covid, I would already have been evicted, because I CANNOT RECORD and therefore I CANNOT WORK and I CANNOT GET PAID. I have been skipping meals trying to conserve what little money I have left. 


This is what I am talking about: Horrible Noise 


I am desperate for help. I have tried EVERY. SINGLE. TROUBLESHOOTING. SOLUTION. If you can name it, I have tried it.


Drivers. SO. Many. Drivers.

Turning off / unplugging everything in the house.

Different wall socket for the PC

Usb Hub.

Different Mic.

Different USB interface.

Different USB Ports


NOTHING changes this awful sound.


I just don't understand. It started two months ago and it has destroyed my ability to work.. I'm going to end up in debt. I don't know what to do. I don't understand how this can just start happening for no reason. 


Please, please, please help me. I cannot afford to buy another tower a year after buying this one.
