COMPUTER MICROPHONE

If the microphone sounds loud, staticky, or has a lot of background noise it might be the internal microphone that is up to high.

First click on the volume icon (bottom right)

Next click on the arrow to the right of the sound level.

This will take you to the internal microphone volume setting. The setting is probably up the highest, it should be somewhere in the middle of the settings.
