There are way too many causes. The easiest way to work around the
problem is to use digital inputs/outputs.

Some possible causes:
* feedback loop between microphone/speakers (probably not, since it's
too obvious)
* ground loop (probably not, since it results in ~50-60Hz noise, not a
high pitched one)
* interference from videocard/other component in the computer
* bad PSU (noise in power line)

I'm sure others will add more
