    Default Chirping/buzzing noises


    I don't know what part of the forum to put this in. My computer makes a
    buzzing noise whenever I scroll on any webpage or document. While
    compressing files, it makes a constant chirping noise. It also makes a
    beep whenever I minimize or maximize a window. I don't think it's
    supposed to do that. What should I do? I have a USB sound card called
    the Soundblaster Live, made by Creative.

    05:05.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! Game Port (rev
    08)

    Try disabling system audio notifications.

    They're already disabled, though. Maybe I have a sound card problem or
    alsa driver problem.

    I think the problem is my speakers. I plugged them into the windows
    laptop I have, and noticed the same odd noises. It buzzes and makes a
    whining noise whenever I maximize or minimize a window. I also realized
    that I never heard the noises under Suse until I got the speakers. These
    are cheap $10 speakers from wal-mart with no shielding, so that's
    probably why.
