This is actually normal for the 5900NU, some users experience it more than others. I experience the same thing from my MSI FX5900, as do many others across many forums. Sadly, there is no fix for all applications that have it, and it appears to be a design fault that affects some users more than others (or some just notice it more than others).

However, to fix it in IE, go to:
Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Browsing and uncheck "Use Smooth Scrolling"

This will eliminate the noise in IE.

Also, driversets 53.03 and later reduce the volume of the noise if you are using an older driver.
We're all in it together.
