Windows 7: Mouse noise

Mouse noise

Hello,
I have a little problem here, which is kind of weird.
I can hear my mouse movement from my headphones, like a really faint noise which is kind of disturbing.
I have done some little researching, and its something related to Onboard sound card which interferes with the USB, and the solution would be to buy a new Sound Card.

I really don't have the money to buy a sound card right now, so what would be another solution for that problem?

PS: The noise can be heard from speakers too, not only from the Headphone.

Welcome

If sound card is bad it must be replaced, but maybe that is not the problem. Update drivers, see what happens.

I know how to update the driver, and i already have the latest driver, even though i don't think its a driver fault actually. But i think i'm going to have to buy a sound card, its the only solution

If you fit a new sound card then that will over ride your onboard sound. How old is the original PC?
EDIT
Just had a thought, your system looks fairly new so have you thought it might be the mouse. Have you a spare to try. Be a shame to buy and fit a new sound card if it was the mouse causing the problem!

I tried with another mouse the problem still persists. I think my only option would be to buy a new sound card. Dang :/

Has anyone found a solution to this problem yet ?

it's an old problem, I had it on XP and have it on W7.
I've changed my sound cards, mobo, and mice, and still the problem persists.
The only thing in common is my gcards are ATI so i suspect this may be where the problem lies.

Previously I used a Logitech wireless mouse and a Creative Audigy 2 sound card.

Now I use a Gigabyte wired mouse, and I have 2 soundcards, the on-board 'Soundmax' (as default) and a Focusrite Sapphire Pro24DSP (for my music production software only) - the mouse noise comes out of both sound cards simultaneously which (as only the Soundmax is assigned as the default) inidicates the noise is in the system path prior to the sound cards.

So forget the speed of gravity, does anyone actually hava clue to a solution

How is the mouse attached, wired or wireless?

it's not an audio card problem as both cards that i use now and my old card all had the same prob.

I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the ATI graphics drivers as although i changed g/cards i still use ATI and so still use Catalyst drivers

i was hoping someone might have heard of this prob
