    try recording from something else like an mp3 player
    if you dont get the hiss then, it's a problem with your decks or mixer

    can be caused by interference form a power source.
    have you tried without the power attached to the laptop

    that means its a goundloop, you need a ground isolater or adapter to plug either your decks into, or your laptop
