Mic gives off static when in discord or recording

HP ENVY 13 2018
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My mic on my end has been giving off static and audio issues for others or when recording. I've already reinstalled my drivers, restarted my laptop, turned off audio enhancements and unplugged my headphones. My headphones work perfectly on my phone so it is definetly either a software or internal hardware issue. I got this laptop last month and have no idea what to do. This problem is also the same for the laptop's internal mic so no idea what the problem is. Please help!!!

Hello Kumar, I have done as you have said but no errors have occured. Does this mean it is a hardware issue? It is also worth noting that sometimes the mic (both computer and headphones) work fine, sometimes after disabling and re enabling the drivers or randomly, but the static always returns.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

If you've done the hardware test and no errors occurred, it's not a hardware issue, that's a good news!
That said, I suggest you
Try lowering the volume of your built-in speakers. 
If the issue persists, create a new user and check if that helps.

 

I hope that helps.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.

Hey Sandy, this unfortunately has no helped the problem. The mic static is still constant and now whenever I open my laptop from sleep there is no sound at all! I genuinely think this is a hardware issue and may bring it in for repairs sine it's in warranty. Any suggestions?
