Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
I just bought this detachable laptop. When I go on skype there is this horrible whirring sound on the receiving end that I can't hear but the other side can hear constantly. They say it sounds like the mic is picking up the fan. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone know how to fix it? The only partial solution is to turn down my mic.... but it is not an ideal fix.
If you put the screen in contact with a desktop, the mic WILL pick up the sound of the fan. Leave the screen attached to the laptop

Unfortunately, even though the laptop is only 4 mths. old, sounds like the bearings in the fan are going out. I would have it replaced. If the fan fails, your processor will overheat and that could be problematic.

It sounds like you just need to choose the default audi input device. You can do this by going to the control panel.
Start Menu > Control Panel > Sound
Once you get there just go to the recordings tab, select the device you want to use and hit "Set Default" after that you can hit properties and it should show you which jake it pertains too.
