Mic looping sound badly

I can't get my mic to work on my new comp. I have Asus P5B Deluxe WiFi/AP motherboard with onboard audio.

Here are my sound settings.

For those few words in finnish there, here are the translations:
Soita = Play
Tallenna = Record

Muut säätimet = Other controls
Etupaneelin mikrofoni = Frontpanel microphone
Sulje = Close

If the Microphone boost is OFF, nothing happens. (It does pick up something, but only if I yell my heart out.)

If the Microphoneboost is ON, sounds start to loop. A short whistle just keeps repeating louder and louder. Also there are pretty bad distortion on it.

Any suggestion what might be wrong?

What sort of microphone is it?

Creative headset HS-300 with mic. It works fine with my other computer.

So to clarify it more: I am using a headset, so the sound is not looping through the microphone itself. It is somehow looping inside the computer/software.

Ny chance, do you have both onboard sound and a soundcard installed?

Only onboard sound.

Probably I've just got some switch/checkbox on wrong setting, I just don't have any clue which one...
