Microphone has loud static noise.. Please help

HP Recommended
HP Envy 360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have uninstalled and reinstalled clean drivers, ran system test (it detects no issue), I have tried using a different microphone and updated my laptop to  no avail. 


My laptop is around 8 months old.  Just in the last few weeks of using my laptop for online classes have I ran into this issue.  I can't use my microphone at all because there is a loud static noise, not just when I am talking.  Please help me!
