When I am browsing the web or using outlook and playing music via winamp or media player I get what I call a grating noise when I try and scroll down the page! I've got 512k of ram and a 60gb hard drive and 1600 processor so what could cause this? Sound card or lack of memory or something else?!!!
The reason I asked about the type of sound card is that I find integrated sound can be quite bad at picking up the noise from bus activity on the motherboard. My ASUS A7V8X-X integrated sound is very poor in this respect, and even a fairly cheap PCI card is generally much better in this respect. You can easily tell if the sound card is PCI because the sockets at the back of the case will be in one of the PCI slot bracket positions, whereas integrated sound sockets will be near the port connectors.
You haven't somehow got a 'sound' associated with the scroll action in the sounds scheme, have you? Start, Control Panel, 'sonds, speech and audio devices', change sound scheme, 'sounds' tab - then check in the 'Program Event' list to see if anything is associated to scroll. As I say its a long shot, but if you have recently applied somekind of theme to windows it may be the cause?! PS the above instructions are for XP home, but you should be able to find it through Contol Panel no matter which OS. Good Luck!
