    anyone have any idea why movement from my mmouse would cause noise thru my speakers? If I mute cd audio from the volume panel, it mutes the noise. The noise is like a scratching sound. It happens with both optical and wheel mice. I have swithced drivers and all. It also happened when I had winME. Not a major problem, just something that annoys me and thought I'd ask to see if I could get an answer.

    Sounds like a sound card problem to me, change cards and see if that fixes it. good luck:D

    I have had that problem too, to fix it I moved the soundcard to a diff slot and mine went away, I think it has something to do with the IO channel.

    Is your mouse USB? I've never encountered the problem with a ps/2 mouse just USB optical mice...if it is usb you might consider just using a usb/ps2 adapter that should have come with the mouse

    yeah, it won't happen with usb. also, your speakers might be turned up pretty high and picking up stray interference from the mouse signals (happens with cheap onboard sound, too). try turning them down a bit and raising the volume in windows.

    I will try the ps2 adapter. It definitely isn't the volume issue.

    I am having this same problem. Has anyone discovered the solution??

    XP
    USB Mouse
    Delta 1010 Soundcard ($700 high end card)

    I believe it has to do with an IRQ sharing problem.. but not sure.

    Here is my IRQ info.. it is very likely that my problem is NOT IRQ related.

    But I have no idea.

    Thanks for your help!
     
  12. its annoying, but i think it may be UN solvable, its probably a Motherboard technical problem.

    maybe its a SOUND BLASTER problem.

    change your mouse it should have "complys to the FCC standard" on it what this means is it doesnt send out radio waves and interrupts with other electical equipment

    I had the same problem. I use a USB mouse (IBM Optical Navigator). The sound card was not the problem (Sound Blaster). The problem was the cheap speakers. Got some Altec Lansing speakers and the problem went away (i.e., speakers are shielded from EMI). All hardware is now shielded from EMI. Required since my BIOS mod disabled EMI shielding due to RD2 Pro board in PCI slot will not function when EMI shielding is enabled.:D :)

    P. S. I guess as long as the mouse does not start to squeak and nibble you will be alright...:D
     
  15. ok i SOLVED it, turn the CD and LINE-IN volumns onto MUTE MODE<, that way it stops all the interference from your mouse etc,, I GARAUNTEE it solves the problem.

    i use a Sound blaster pci128
