    I get real echo of my voice and any movement near the web-cam mic when I use my web-cam and it is duplicated when use the "test hardware" under the Voice tab in Audio and Sound devices (Windows XP SP3).

    If I touch or move the cam the sound blasts us away.

    I have all other mics disconnected and checked mute on the microphone on master volume (this was for a mic that is not on USB.)

Go into the Control Panel and select Sound and Audio Devices.
Choose the tab Audio and then select under Sound Recording the Volume Button.
UNcheck any devices other than Microphone (checked). Also, put your microphone level midway.
See if that helps.

    Keep the mic away from the speakers, or you will get feedback.

Your mic may also be picking up sound from your own speakers. To overcome this problem use a set of headphones.

Background noise from webcam


I had a similar situation. I have another capture card installed on my computer. I disabled the onboard device through Device Manager and then downloaded and installed the Newest version of the lifecam software, ver. 2.04, and then restarted the system. I also connected a microphone and used that rather than the mic built into the camera. So far, the loud white noise has not returned.

Good luck. I hope this helps and please let me know how it works out.
