Default Mic Problems

Ok I have really frustrating problems with my vent right now.

Heres my situation: Since I'm on vacation I am away from my home and I can only use my old mac book pro. This computer is really, really old so it makes this vibrating sound constantly. So when I am on vent people were yelling at me for having the vibrating sound (since I used the built in mic on my laptop).

So I decided I would go out and buy a mic to fix the problem. So I whent to radioshack and bought a mic/headset that plugs in with a mic and headset jack (not usb) and I whent on vent.

Now witht the mic on and everything people are still complainging about the vibrating, and I can't figure anything out about it but that the mic isnt working right. After thinking for a while I just realized that the settings must not work for the mic or something (because its a BRAND NEW mic).

So here is a cap of my settings:

PLEASE tell me what Im doing wrong for my headset with a mic built in! Remember it is one that hooks up to my computer through the mic and headset jacks.

the first problem is that the jack on the mac is not a mic jack, it's a line-input jack so your mic won't work without a device like the Griffin iMic. if possible, suggest you take the headset back and get a usb type headset.

then in vent setup, set the sound devices to the name of the usb headset.

or you can try using the built-in mic by setting the sound-input device to 'built-in input' and set the outbound amplifier to 0

the noise may be coming from electrical interferrence from the fan.
