mouse noise?

Why can I hear clicking noise's when I move my mouse or scroll up & down the screen?

Where do the noises come from?

The mouse itself? The speakers?

What actions actually cause the clicking noises?

  Hitch-Hiker 14:08 04 Oct 2003

the speakers.

it happens when ever I use the mouse to scroll pages or just moving the pointer around the screem.

That's interesting, I get a screachy/clicky sound when using the scroll too, but only when I am listening to music, it's silent the rest of the time. I've never worked out why it does it.

The mouse is a MS Optical type.

Because I'm just as anxious to hear an answer now!

Control Panel, Sounds and Audio, Sounds, I think 'Start Navigation' is the usual culprit.

Did graham√ response work for you?

It had no affect on my PC.

I have win 98se2 sounds and audio are not in the control panel.

It is not an Optical on standard cordless ball type by Packard Bell.

To prove, in Sounds, Sound scheme, select No Sounds, Apply, OK.

i don't have Sound scheme in sounds

OK, you haven't got Sounds installed, that may be the cause. I only have '95, but I think it's the same as '98.

In Control Panel, Add/remove, Windows Setup, check Multimedia. You will be prompted for '98 CD. Browse to the drive if necessary.
