  1. Hi people,
    I'm running an AMD phenom quad on windows seven 64bit, and for some reason whenever I run a game and sometimes on certain websites my mouse will stop working and ill get a wierd but loud feedback kind of noise from the speakers. I've tried everything I can think of, updated all my drivers, clean reboot, re built my computer, everything. It seems to happen at random, all I can say is that it happens everytime I try to play battlefield bad company 2.
    I'll be on here all day so any advice will be very much appreciated
    Also apologies if this is in the wrong forum

    This could be a power supply issue. What is the make and model and wattage rating?

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I'm not sure what make it is, im pretty sure its a generic 400w one. I'm running a NVIDIA 9800gt if that's any help to you. I'm in work at the moment so I cant give any concrete information until tomorrow. If there's anything else you need to know ill do my best to help

    Okay, I really think you should try another power supply when you can...

    Ok im at home now, just tried to fit a PSU from a HP desktop and the connections didnt fit on the motherboard which means I have to buy a new one. Can anyone suggest a suitable PSU?. Ive got a ASrock K10N78, the link to the site is -

    Thanks for any help
