    So, I've recently installed windows XP on my MBP 5.5 again and I found that the internal microphone is distorting my voice pretty bad. The voices from the microphone sound like they've been slowed 30x and made way lower. It's impossible to understand anything, basically it's just a very annoying noise.

    I've had the same windows from the same cd (and drivers from the same apple cd) installed before and the microphone worked like a charm.

    I can't be 100% sure that it's not damaged, as I don't use the microphone on mac osx and I've no way to test it out right now (as I'm currently at work) but I'll confirm that it's in working shape asap. The computer hasn't suffered any falls/beating or any other kind of abuse, I've mainly used it at home and it's rarely lifted from my desk, so I don't think the hardware is damaged.

    Any ideas?
