AMP annoying noises when charging through USB - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Sound card might not solve the issue. It sounds like your motherboard / power supply / house circuit has bad grounding. The only way to isolate it would be getting an external DAC.

This makes sense and it's what I was wondering that could be the problem.

Any ideas?
I was thinking of taking my rig apart and then assembling it all again to make sure at least the mobo is not grounded.
I do not live in a house, it's an apartment and I'm almost sure it has proper grounding in every plug

yeah put everything connected to your pc on the same ground. 1 outlet 1 ground

Noise from moving your mouse can generally be fixed by tightening screws on all your devices and getting a good case power supply. Another fault caused by bad grounding is Hard drives creating noise, once again tightening the screws on the drive can help.
check your MB and see if it has washers between the screws and the board..If so remove them..

Check the MB mounts, if they are plastic and not metal posts replace them with good strong metal posts that give the MB good grounding. buying a new case may be necessary to do this.

Some cases have paint on them, scratch the paint off where ever a screw is screwed in.

Something like this is between the case and the motherboard.. (are those considered washers too? they are standoffs)

As for removing those and grounding the mobo... this could be the issue... but... Wasn't the MOBO supposed not to touch at all the case, aside from those "washers"?
I heard people saying that all sorts of problems could show up if the motherboard was contacting the case


Do you get any references to support what you just suggested?
I wanna read a little more before I attempt anything...
