Background noise with USB Headset

My Logitech USB headset (not sure what model) hasn't been giving me problems in Ventrilo until today. I've made no changes to any settings. The mic keeps picking up a static white noise in the background. I have made sure that input and output device have been selected to USB, as well as my sound settings under Control Panel. I have checked off "Use direct sound" on both input and output, and turned on the hardware input mixer to USB. I do have a table fan that contributes to the noise but it's never been an issue til now. I have turned off all sound enhancements under Sound in Control Panel. Windows Vista, hope you can help.

  1. Dust can be doing that, no joke. Unplug it, blow in it (both the headset and the usb port) and try it again. If that doesn't work it could be a basic mic problem because it is old or nana.
