So I just recently got myself a "new" PC. It's actually my old Quad, I just brought it back to live, since my laptop died.
Anyway, I installed Teamspeak3 to communicate with my fellas as usual. But when TS is running, I hear weird windy noise all the time. It was all ok with previously on my laptop.
I use Creative Fatality HS-1000 USB Headset. I tried to plug it in different usb slots, nothing seems to help. I updated every possible driver, but it did not help either. Pretty please, help me, it's driving me nuts.
*When I disable my mic in Sound options in windows, it stops. But moving levels down or anything does not help...
*Realtek HD Audio Manager does not list my headset, I think it did previously on Laptop. But since the headset is USB, I think it should not list it anyway?
*Currently I run on W7 64bit.
Its not a soundcard thing, because the USB headset will ignore any soundcard thats intalled.
Based on the fact it goes away when you mute your mic, the headset is probably configured to play back whatever the mic picks up, which would create a constant background noise [because the audio output would ALWAYS be open, even if the mic volume was set all the way to the bottom]. So check TS/Windows to see if the mic is set to playback whatever it picks up.
It might be it, I am testing right now, it seems without the mouse it's better. I'll test more this evening and report if I succeed or not. Thanks guys, however, what can I do about this? Buy a new Power Supply to the PC?
Its not a PSU problem; each USB hub can only put out so much power at any one time. You can try using a USB connector thats using a different hub [most PC's have two seperate USB hubs], or you could get a powered USB hub and use that instead.
I plugged the headset from the front, while keeping the mouse connected in the back. No chance. Unplugged mouse, no change... I'm getting really desperate, it seems like I listen to the static from the PC and it's driving me nuts... I'll probably buy a new headset with 3,5mm jacks, instead of this freakyn USB, but why does it work on other PCs and not on mine? God dammit...
