I'm trying to use a program called Audacity on my laptop to record a song I wrote, but everything that I record has white noise in the background. I'm pretty sure it comes from the computer vibrating since I'm using the microphone in the laptop. Does anyone know how to get rid of this without spending money?

chances are that this noise is a symptom of the crappy soundcard/ converters in all laptops,
those ultra cheap things just arent cut out for recording decent quality.

to answer your question, you could try using the "Noise Removal" effect in Audacity. not ideal but it might work.
the only REAL way to fix this is to get a good sound from source, through a good quality USB or FireWire interface

Tyler Durden is not a jackass!

You should think about getting a USB type condenser mic as he said. Using the microphone on a laptop will get you, in short, **** recordings.

ok so one time i was totally wanking and then my mom walked in and my cat was in my room... she knocked first so i grabbed my cat and put it on my lap and started petting it to cover up but then i jizzed on my cat..

Okay I guess that helps..... I'll try the noise removal thing and if that doesn't work I'll sell myself on the streets until I get enough money for the MIC... thanks...
