Solved: Speakers crackling?
Just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit, speakers are crackling when I'm playing music and using the computer at same time. They don't seem to do it if all the computer is doing is playing music, any help?

Hi, I usually find the mouse being used has something to do with that crackling noise- so if you have a spare mouse try that.

I've seen computers that have this issue, make the static noise just when I move the mouse cursor around the screen- don't have to be actually selecting files, or clicking..... just moving the cursor around will create static.

What type of mouse have you been using? Any special software drivers that you installed with that mouse?

(Microsoft Intellimouse, for example?)

Try a different type of mouse if your computer has for example, a PS/2 port, use an USB mouse or wireless.

You could try just a different PS/2 one, or if you are now using an USB type, try a different one.....post the results.

Try a different USB slot, also.

If you currently use other USB devices, like an iPod, MP3 player, etc try rearranging them. Use higher requirement items like the external drives in a rear of the tower computer port, as they usually provide more power in those rather than the front ports.
If your computer is a notebook then use what you have. If you are using an USB hub do the least items you absolutely need including the mouse.

It worked fine when I had Vista, would the mouse not have affected it then? I just updated the drivers and it's got even worse

Now it's crackling even without moving mouse.

Well, Windows 7 does have hardware compatibility issues, like almost every new OS that comes out....lots of things just will not work well with 7.

This can also be a system resources type of issue which is harder to fix. Does take some switching of the devices, like I posted.

Your mouse could have become slightly damaged, since you used it with Vista, right? How would you or I know anyway?

You could try the mouse speed settings....pointer controls, I am not sure where these are in 7 but look in Control Panel> Mouse
