Static from speakers when moving mouse - Page 4

post #31 of 36
I'm not sure if I can shed much light on this subject but I have ruled out just about everything other than typical motherboard problems and will be able to update this soon with a better motherboard.

I shall explain, I have had this same problem on numerous systems off and on over the last five years with a wide variety of computers/speakers/headsets and components. I currently have an Asus M4N75TD MB, AMD Athlon II X4 635 CPU, Antec EA-650 PSU, Auzentech X-Forte audio card and either a single Galaxy GTX 460 or 2 in SLI. I have bought an Asus Sabertooth 9900FX and will be upgrading to that in a few weeks, have to run a bunch of benchmarks first.

I know this is not a combination of this hardware or the lack or inclusion of a sound card or the ATI VS NVIDIA graphics card. I have access to two other ATI cards as well as another NVIDIA card and all of them do the same noise/interference over speakers and headsets. I have tried undoing the sound card and using onboard with the motherboard and I still get interference. The biggest solution I have found is to mute the microphone and not use any of the available options in the sounds panel for playback devices.

I'm not sure if this is a combination of hardware or anything anyone has discussed as I have seen this with both USB and 3.5mm sound as well as both onboard and dedicated sound cards. I have also tried numerous times to route cables and ensure good grounds in several systems I have had this on to no avail.

By the way I know this is a common issue as I have had it several times on several computer builds, I review computer hardware/software and peripherals for a living. I have had this on numerous peripherals including both top of the line speaker systems like the Logitech Z5500 and cheap $30 speakers like Genius or Altec Lansing.

I currently have a Razer Tiamat 7.1 and found this problem as well, I went into the sound devices and muted all microphones to get rid of most but not all static. It is not noticeable when anything is playing but if nothing is playing I can barely hear it.

Not sure if this helps but this is the best I have found to help get rid of the static/noise/interference.

Control panel > Sound and audio devices > Volume > Advanced > Options > Properties > Playback > Tick PC Speaker or PC Beep, which ever you have. Then mute/lower it's volume

Since this is the top result on the entire internet for audio static through 5.1 speakers, I just wanted to quote this 2 year old post and say...

IT WORKS!

Thank you so much! This could probably have solved years of headaches with previous speaker setups that did the same thing.

Works in Win7 for me... thumb.gif

Control panel > Device Manager > System Devices.
Right click the one that says 'system speaker' and turn it off.

@zenn84, I know this post is old but I have 8.1, not 7. I can make it all the way to system devices but nothing in the drop-down list reads" system speaker." Can you, or anyone else here, please shed some light on this? I'm desperate to fix this issue because I only JUST got this ASUS notebook, and I was so happy with it.

Hi all - I know this is a relatively old post but there has been a little chatter on it every couple of years. I wanted to mention my experience regarding this. I'm not done figuring it out, but I'm working around it for the moment.

BTW, I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell XPS 8300 with a Creative audio card and a Dell XPS 8910 with built-in audio, plus a Dell laptop plugged into a docking station. My speakers are nothing fancy - Cyber Acoustics CA-3614. All of these are plugged into two monitors via DVI, proxied through my StarTech 4-port dual-DVI KVM switch (SV431DD2DUA).

I have had the problem described in this post on a couple of computers, and only noticed it in the last few months, but I'm not always the most attentive person, so I haven't necessarily assumed it had to do with my introduction of the KVM switch. However, through some testing, I've found that - at least - when plugged into the first port and (I believe) the third port, I get the weird audio "feedback" when scrolling or moving my mouse while the video is simultaneously updating. It may also happen with the laptop but - honestly - I'm just too lazy to get it set up at the moment.

If I run the audio cable from the speakers directly to the computer, the problem goes away.

I'm going to look a little further and see if there is such as thing as shield audio cables that might protect from such interference (yes, I know these cables exist, but really the question is the converse - is there such thing as an unshielded audio cable or are they all shielded and so therefore I already have shielded cables and my thought is moot). I know the scenario isn't the same as what has been described above, but I figure this might help someone else.
