I can hear my mouse and some other devices

Hi

I just bought a ne Mainboard ( Asus A7N8X-X).
I installed for the nforce devices the intel_8x0 for sound and forcedeth for networking.

Now I hear strange sound when I move the mouse, load data fron HDD or DVD. Even moving the curser with the arrowkey will make such sound.

What have I to mute such sounds?

my modules

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

It also helps if you have shielded cables

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

There's a similar problem with Via8235 onboard audio, actually. Try reducing your CD volume and see where that gets you.

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

Wait a minute... Play an MP3 or something and reduce the Master volume while it's playing. Does the volume of the audio go down, or does it seem as though nothing has happened?

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

Do you have on-board sound? Then it might happen just because it's crappy. Try running glxgears. Do you hear something?
You can alleviate the problem by:
1) downclocking - by 50% you will get a good noise reduction
2) run kernel with "no-hlt" option (prevents from turning on and off the cpu, so the power supply is more stable)

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

Have you looked into the official nVIDIA sound drivers? I use them for the nVIDIA SoundStorm that came with my nForce2 and get Dolby Digital and hardware mixing. I am not sure if they work with later models, but they should. To do this, do `pacman -S nforce` And make sure no other sound modules are loaded or no other sound support exists in the kernel other than the basic sound support. Then load nvsound.

With this you get nvmixer for adjusting the volume. You can use nvmix-reg in order to store/restore the mixer settings. Cheers.

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

Man, this is nothing. On my system (Soltek nvidia mobo), I can see tiny-little  noise on the screen when the CPU usage goes high. I tried changing video cables, shielding everything, playing with bios settings... it's still there. Fortunately it doesn't seem to affect stability.

It's the last time I invested my money in this nvidia bullshit. Hopefully I'll get a matrox G550 soon. Closed drivers = bad thing (Yes, apart from the noise I sometimes experience the infamous nvidia bug)

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

I have this problem too on my asus A7N8X-deluxe, but I have 2 solutions for this problem smile

On my gentoo box I solved it with the following command:

setpci -s 0:00.0 6F.B=0F

I found it somewhere on a forum, it disables cpu disconnect or something like that.  Anyway, it works nice, so I created a bootup script to execute it every bootup

But I installed archlinux a week ago and I used the latest nvidia drivers this time (they are in the extra repository) and I do not have the problem anymore.  I can clearly hear the noise untill I type "modprobe nvsound", then it all disappears wink

Re: I can hear my mouse and some other devices

If you can hear the CD player spinning away, you might want to remove the CD-in cable - it's no longer necessary for using CD audio.
