Improving PC microphone voice input?

    I am really struggling with this. What can I do soldering wise? what
    can I buy? I really need to know how to improve the microphone sound
    input to my PC. I would like to eliminate the hiss/noise.

    My last effort is an external USB soundcard. It's not bad sounding
    like a USB headset microphone I tried once before which produced lots
    of hum, but it doesn't seem to be an improvement.

    I have also tried some microphones that have adapters in between the
    microphone and the soundcard input, apparently to help boost/correct
    the bias voltage on the microphone element. It seems to remove some
    hiss, but it seems to increase low frequency hum.

    I tried hooking up a digital voice recorder to the line input and it
    sounds better than direct input through my microphone. Any
    suggestions for an inexpensive retail microphone preamp? A low noise
    headset microphone? The circumstance requires the input to be from a
    headset microphone to help maintain consistent volume.

    Thank you.
