    Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving,

    1. I use a HP laptop.
    2. People I talk to hear a loud hum on my audio (transmission).
    3. If I unplug the power supply on the laptop, the hum is significantly reduced.
    4. Anything I can to do stop the hum?

    Appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    That may be a hard one to fix, It could be a ground loop. Does your laptop have a 3 prong plug ?

    One thing you may want to try, Is to select the 300 Hz audio filter.
