Sitting at my desk testing a Headset/Microphone plugged in to the mic/headphone socket of my HP laptop. It is working fine, but is picking up the sound of the hard drive spinning as it records (using audacity). I have never run into this before and I can't even hear the drive spinning while I am working, but in the headphones (and on the recording) you can hear it.
I have confirmed it's definitely the hard drive as I can match the drive activity light to the sound in the 'phones. How the hell can I stop it picking this noise up?
