Hmmm - I asked only to eliminate a CD drive problem as the issue... The only other thing I can think of is that you have something running in the background that is consuming huge amounts of processor/memory. You might want to check in Task Manager and look at 'processes' and 'applications', see if there's something strange going on.

Try double-clicking on the volume icon [bottom right hand corner] to bring up 'Volume Control'. Then click on 'Advanced' and make sure 'Microphone Boost' is unticked.
