Post Corsair Vengeance 2000 - Static Sound + Beta Driver for windows 8.1 crashs

As the title says, I'v recently bought this headset yesterday, the thing i'v noticed while using it is a constant static/white noise sound which stays the same no matter what volume my computer is on, if i mute my sound or unplug the wireless USB from my computer then this static sound stops.

Also when trying to install the new drivers for this headset it crashes while installing and freezes up my computer, i am using windows 8.1 and trying to install the Beta Driver v2.0.19 for Windows 8.1.

Just noticed it makes a buzzing type sound when my headset is charging and friends could hear it via skype

Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks

Have you tried installing the drivers in safe mode?

No, the K90 drivers won't cause the OS to crash.


Check Event Viewer and see if you can find any entries related to the freezing.

okay il check that out =) also when trying to uninstall an audio program the other day, this came up "Error 1704. An installation for Corsair Headset Software is currently suspended. You must undo the changes made by that installation to continue. Do you want to undo those changes?" this was after the pc crashed while installing the corsair software

Run SFC /SCANNOW in command prompt and see if that helps.
Have you tried booting Windows 8.1 with driver enforcement disable? Does it help?

Does the older driver versions install fine?
Latest updates for all your devices and Windows?
Have you tried disabling your on-board audio controller in the BIOS?
