are you runnig something ir or wireless? I had a cheaper hub and I used to get feedback when I had the ir and wireless headphones I used to use connected to the same hub. I got a better powred hub from e-bay and it cleared up the issue.

I do have a wireless LAN card! could this be causing it?

not that i know of, the problem for me was the wireless devices that were all connected to my usb hub were interfering with each other. It's possible that you are having something else causing feedback.

Problem Found!

PSU buzzing, found out that corsairs do buzz and a number of things can cause this,

GPU without vsync enabled in games!

Power saving modes in bios!

Power saving sotware! etc etc.

So i had a little look around and found that i have asus epu-6 engine active on my system and when i change power modes the buzz stops when i move the mouse.
recalibrated and it seems to have stopped but it does still buzz occasionally depending on the power mode.

should i not worry?

I might be experiencing a similar noise with my Corsair PSU. Where did you find the information regarding the noise? Thanks! :D

Sorry 808Rob i cant think for the life of me where i found the info but i did just find it by google searching ''corsair buzzing when i move the mouse'' and you probably wont be far off.

OK the corsairs do make a little buzz naturally but I found it to be the epu-6 engine which is the software which asus provide with their motherboards. Its a kind of overclocking and power saving tool and after i had calibrated it and went into power saving mode it would buzz when i moved the mouse. Im led to believe that most psu's dont like these power saving software especially corsair psu's.

I have since formatted my pc and didnt install any of the asus overclocking/powersaving tools and i now overclock using bios only and i dont have the buzz anymore.

if you dont have an asus board or any of this software installed then im afraid i cant help you.

thanks

I just fixed my sorta high-pitched buzz, thanks to your mouse insight. Only when I moved the mouse. (Coolmax power supply, not corsair.) Recently I got three new mice, none of which seemed to like my mouse pad, I discovered just now. To varying degrees they do seem to work better sitting directly on the maple coffee table surface; although, my preferred ostentatious, clear red one still buzzed a little. But I can use the rose-red one. No buzzes at all unless I pick it up.

What lead me to the mouse itself was that I checked the apparent things. 1.) I turned off the Asus GPU tweaker I am using and nothing changed. 2.) don't have a corsair PSU. 3.) Moved all my USB ports around. 4.) Played around with my active USB hub. Nothing helped, so I went to the the next suspect -- the mouse.

Thank you all. I was going to go crazy with that buzzing! -jerry

Problem Fixed!

I have an Asus motherboard (like many others with this issue) and for me it was tweaking a few BIOS settings that did the trick. I disabled AI Overclock Tuner (which controls DRAM overclocking), I disabled SpeedStep Tech (which enables OS control of CPU speed), and I enabled Extreme Phase Full Power Mode (which, as confusing as it sounds, disables power saving). I also set DRAM clock speed to a set 1066 (which is what my memory is rated for) rather than auto.

I have no idea which of those things happened to fix my problem, and I don't really care - this is the first time in months I've expereinced this SWEEEEETTT SILENNCEEE. I'm curious why ASUS has such shitty default settings on their boards that are clearly causing a lot of people problems.

But anyways, hope this can help some of you out there as well!

Thanks so much! I have a gigabyte motherboard and a Lian-Li psu, after reading this thread (after putting up mouse squeal for years), I had a poke in my windows power settings and changed from High Performance to Balanced and voila! Problem solved! Hopefully it also solves my front usb hanging issues as well but doubtful.

Setting my windows settings from performance to balanced work thanks guys :)

I also have an Asus board and Corsair Power supply I too had a weird buzzing noise when moving my mouse. I changed my Windows power plan to balanced and it solved my buzzing noise as well.

Thank you it had been driving me nuts.

I'm having this problem too, made a post about it, didn't get much response,

Gigabyte board, and some cheap psu (replacing soon as it's on the fritz anyway)

Changing my power settings did nothing to help this, switching in fact appears to have made it worse, as it is now constant, as opposed to sporadic, with buzzing when the mouse scrolls, and on occasion, when I type.

There's also an odd thing where running a game, or something will make the noise either quieter, or just non-existent, and it's really beginning to confuse me.

I plugged in my mouse usb to the furthest usb slot from the audio jack and that fixed it for me. My guess is that some electric signals from the usb that I had my mouse connected to were jumping to the audio jack.
