Windows 7: Static noise in speakers?

Static noise in speakers?

Just the other day I noticed when I was watching a movie on my computer with my headphones on then muted the sound I heard heavy static. I also have a Logitech mic that I just bought recently and when I played back my voice via from Audacity, all I heard was constant static noise. Are my speakers going out? Or do I need to update my sound card/driver? If so, what kind for a Windows 7 64 bit would I need to download?

Any help would be very much appreciated

I have ATI High Definition Audio device speakers, and I can't seem to find the latest drivers for them anywhere on Window's site. If I download another manufacturer I've heard that the audio can fail to work correctly.

I remember someone I knew told me to just download the latest audio drivers but I had a hard time finding the specific one for my computer.

EDIT: I found the latest drivers while wandering the internet aimlessly, is that a bad thing if the "latest drivers" haven't been updated since 2009? I bought my comp in 2007.

There are many VENDOR supplied drivers that have not been updated for a long time. I see this a lot on the Dell drivers, as Dell does not tend to generally issue an update unless the device does not meet their published specs.

You haven't listed your system specs so we can't really comment on your hardware. Please fill in the "MY System Specs". It helps someone to try and help you.
