Hello, I have an issue that I can't seem to resolve. About a year ago I built my PC with a M4A89GTD pro series Mobo, and a Radeon HD 5770 card. I put 4 gigs of 1600 Kingston ram in. When I play certain games (anything other that WoW) my sound goes all crazy, kind of sounds like an Angry Fax machine tone, and the graphics get choppy. If I stop moving my mouse, it will go back to normal, but the second I move my mouse or touch my keyboard it goes crazy again. If I close out of the game, the problem continues until I shut down (forcefully) the computer. I have since replaced the RAM, and added a new soundcard (I turned the onboard one off in the Bios) I switched the Radeon card to the second PCIE slot and not the problem is worse. Any ideas?
One thing you could try is to go to Control Panel/Sound/Playback tab and disable any other sound devices devices that are on. Like the AMD card's sound output (if it has one). Although, moving the mouse/keyboard almost sounds like they are causing interference. Are both USB? Is your computer plugged into a grounded outlet?
I flashed the Bios, and ran the Ccleaner you recommended. The mouse and keyboard are USB, but I have tried running the computer without a mouse and with an old ps2 (if that's the right term) mouse and that doesn't seem to make a difference. I have disabled all of the other sound playback options, but it doesn't seem to be the link. I am starting to wonder if the issue is not in the mobo or the vid card...... maybe bad mem on the card?
I am having the same problem with a computer I recently built, using i5 2500K, GTX 460, Asus mobo, etc. Sometimes when playing a video on hulu, or playing WoW, when I move my mouse the video gets choppy for about a second and I get the angry fax machine sound too. It is starting to happen more and more often. It seems to definitely be triggered by moving my mouse (and possibly although I haven't noticed it, when pressing a key on my keyboard). I am using a wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard combination in general, but I also have a steelseries WoW mouse connected at all times that I use when I play wow. Both mice(?) seem to trigger the effect. Have you found a solution yet? anybody else have any ideas?
I noticed something interesting... when I have one program with video, and a different program as the source of audio the audio doesnt seem to go bananas, and I think the video still something does get choppy.
I ran the dxdiag, and it seem to detect no problem... but I didn't see a specific sound test to run, nor where to set full hardware acceleration. And, I think My connection was well grounded, but just in case I plugged my computer in another outlet. I'll post an update after I play a bit to see if the problem persists. thx.
