Craziest playback problem...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is so strange. I just got finished putting my backup computer back together. All of the hardware is the same as before. I did reinstall Windows XP. When I play any music, it sounds great unless I scroll the mouse wheel down a list or click a mouse button in WMP or Firefox during playback. When I do that, the speakers emit some pretty annoying squealing and the music distorts. It emits noise according to what I do with the mouse, like one ping/squeal per click of the mouse wheel. If I do it a whole bunch, the playback goes INSANE and then stops until I pause and play again.

This does not occur if I scroll down my library in iTunes, but the aforementioned causes affect both WMP and iTunes playback (so scrolling down my library in WMP screws up iTunes playback).

I have an Xtrememusic. It's never done this before. I know that this has nothing to do with my mouse being wireless because this same thing happens with a USB optical mouse.

Happens when I scroll around while watching a YouTube video too.

Anyone have any idea what this is being caused by?

Sounds like interference, try removing your sound card leaving it to sit for a while
then plug it back in. Failing that you should get an EMI shield for your sound card
(Electro-Magnetic Interference).
