I had that issue too. but sadly, i cant fix it. I have a Soundblaster X-fi something, and whenever i move the mouse in a game, you can hear a frequency. And different screens and parts of the game would emit a different noise. it was really friggin weird, and i switched to USB headset till i get a new one.

It's called crosstalk, caused by poor design of electronic components, typically the motherboard or soundcard.

It is either what DJ Chris said, but when I have this problem, I go into whatever Creative Console I have open, and mute the auxiliary and line in components. Go see if those are muted or not.
