Whenever I start up my PC it sounds like its doing morse code.
I think it has something to do with my mouse.
I don't know much about computors,but I know if I unplug the mouse the noise stops.
Sometimes on startup,the mouse (microsoft optical)
doesn't appear to be working. If I restart it will come back & start working again,but always with this morse code(continuous monotonous noise)damn annoying!! I have had the mouse checked out where I bought it. They connected it to one of their computors & it appeared to be working just fine.
I have also tried uninstalling the software & reinstalling but the noise is still there!
Could it have something to do with the adapter?
I have a Pentium 111
56K modem
Windows 98
Would appreciate any insights to my problem?
Thank you

If the mouse is causing the problems you may have a conflict between the mouse controller and the sound card. If the Mouse is PS/2 (small round connection than you can probably fix it by moving the sound card to a different slot if it is not built onto the mainboard. If the mouse is USB/PS2 than try it in the USB slot.
