ok this has been going on for like a week now and is driving me freeking CRAZY!!!!!!! You know those wind up toys you had when you were a kid, you wind them up and the walk or jump, but they kinda make that gear noise when they move. Well my computer speaker and headphones make that noise everytime i move my mouse. It doesnt make the noise anyother time, just when i move my mouse. I started to make music with it so it wouldnt get so bothered by it, but now i cant take it anymore. anyone have an idea as to why, or how this noise is made?? a bad ground or something?
Have you tried a different mouse?
Have you checked if the cable from your mouse is moving the cable of your speakers everytime you use it?
Make sure the cables are not coming in contact with any fan blades.
Chances are your speakers have thier own volume. Turn the speaker volume down. Turn your windows volume up to half way. The windows volume should never be above 50% to avoid distortion. If you have anything plugged into the sound card input pull it out, and mute the input. This should fix ur problem. If you had and input device, and you want to put it back in, play with the volume levels of the input device to avoid the most distortion.
Hope this helps
hey, the reason your comp has started to do this is becouase your virtual memory is low and disk space is fragged up.. so i sugest removing old programmes and games you dnt use.. and deffreagging your computer. then check your volume control settings.. the reason for the hum is because the power to the mouse has to be draind from your hard working harddrive.... so you need to half your HDD load....
Hope you solve it. gives us a messege if it works
Check out the electrical connection specialy ground. Also check the connector
of the mouse. If it is a usb mouse then try another port. If it is a PS/2 or serial mouse then try with a USB mouse. Sometimes corrupted sound driver
also creates problem. In that case reinstall the driver and try. Also check for
any loose connection. Check by removing the speaker point and putting a head phone at line out. Sometimes improperly shielded speakers cause distrotion if they are placed too near to the UPS or monitor.
I have encountered this problem a couple of times on different computers, it seems more noticeable when using headphones. My desktop machine still has this problem although not terribly noticeable it is definitely there in the background and becomes more noticeable when i move my mouse. I also noticed when i had the cover off the case a while ago the RAM modules themselves seemed to make a very high pitched noise every time i moved the mouse! very odd!
If i was to take a guess i would imagine that is is caused by some sort of HF. interference as most PCs have pretty high frequencies in their circuitry, but if that is the case my desktop uses the on board sound therefore it would have to be interference on/from the motherboard itself.
It would be very interesting to know the cause of this problem. Maybe a question for an electronics engineer?
