4) Find the entry titled "PC Beep". Mute this entry by clicking on the blue speaker icon to the left of the "Balance" icon.
That fixed mine, so hopefully it works for you too.
Signed up just to say thank you meat_helmet, I had just finished building a new PC using the P6T & Windows 7, & was disturbed to find this static type noise in the background, which seemed to react to everything I did (scrolling, moving mouse, hard drive activity etc etc). Your solution resolved the issue perfectly. No more annoying noises!
aldernon... are you sure you've followed meat_helmet's instructions exactly? He has outlined the process perfectly, so you should see the "PC Beep" volume slider. For me, "PC Beep" is the first entry. But there is a scroll bar to the right & you should be able to scroll through all available entries. I would be surprised if "PC Beep" is definitely not there.
