Weird beep beep boop noise

Q: Weird beep beep boop noise

My computer has been making this noise for quite some time now. but it would only happen once every few days so it didn't really concern me until now because its happening non stop. The noise is definitely coming from system sounds. I'm not sure if this is related but under device manager there is an unknown device which i cannot account for as i put the computer together and I'm staring in to the case rite now. there is also a yellow icon by teredo tunneling pseudo-interface (i have no idea what that is)lately my computer just seems to be working really hard when idling. the cpu is constantly spiking up to 100% usage and my hard drives seem to constantly be spinning. specscpu: intel core 2 duomobo: abit ab9ram: 1gb ddr2gfx: geforce 9800 gtx+hd: 2 seagate internal drives (1 with os) the other blank for storage. In my mind there are two possibilities. 1 i have some sort of virus. 2 some hardware is malfunctioning. either way i have no idea where to start and i was hoping someone could point me in the rite direction. Thank You!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You should check for malware first. I'll ask a mod to move this to the appropriate forum.

I am getting beep sounds when i turn on my dell inspiron n5010.
Nothing is showing up other than beep sounds.
Please help me out

A:RE: Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

Hi Ganny,
What are the exact # of beeps in a cycle? 
Kindly review this chart and see page# 47 - it will help isolate the source of the issue. 
Based on the exact # of beeps, that part would need to be replaced.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

My laptop here is a Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series. 
The laptop itself works perfectly fine, I am able to get into windows (which I installed myself, it originally came with Ubuntu). 
Occasionally though, it will do a BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE (repeats).
This happens on boot and sometimes when I am using it. Sometimes it turns off suddenly when I am shifting the computer around. It's extremely loud.

What is causing this? The sound seems to be coming from around the area the Memory banks are under the laptop, but nothing seems to suggest that anything is wrong.
I took a suggestion and used FN+Power to do Hardware Diagnostics which said nothing is wrong.

What else can I try?


A:Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the beep pattern repeats.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep pattern repeats and reply us with the beep count.

If you still receive 3 Beeps on the system then it indicates System board failure.. You will have to replace it on the laptop.
Please let me know the findings.

My X230 gets very little use since I bought it in 2012... sometimes no use at all for weeks at a time. Yet the system board failed, as did a replacement, and now the third board seems to have failed. On startup I get 1 beep, 3 beep, 3 beep, 1 beep and a blank screen. I tried the existing RAM stick in both slots: no startI bought and tried a NEW stick of RAM from Crucial in both slots: no startI tried both sticks in the slots at the same time: no start Other than another bad system board, what could it be? Where can I get a system board that might last? By the way, at the same time I bought the X230 I also bought a T530 that gets gallons of heavy use almost every day and never had a problem that I didn't cause myself.

I have two printers connected to a Dell E520 through Vista. They are a Brother 5440CN and a HP 6110xi. The .Brother works ok but I can't say the same for the HP. Clicking any button on the HP gives the same response. Beep, beep, beep. I have recently moved the system to a new location just a couple of feet from where it was. Before the move Brother would scan and copy and the HP would do the same, but now as noted I can't get any response out of it but beep, beep, beep

Anybody have any ideas??.

i shut it down properly upon finding that my C key was on the fritz. a couple of months ago, my E key had been doing the same (randomly not working and randomly typing e consistently). once i rebooted, i got the message "Operating System (OS) Not Found".

i let my computer rest for a while and turned it back on. i currently get the toshiba startup, but around when it's suppose to load the os, it beeps continuously at the loudest volume with a contantly blinking underscore in white font on a black background.

i believe this may have happened once before, but i have no clue what i did to fix it.

there are no extra items like CDs or disks in the laptop.

A:Compaq bios freeze short beep long beep

Is the beep pattern just one short one long? Check your manual for the POST beep codes to determine what it is telling you. All POST beep codes are different so there's no way to tell unless we know exact model of your PC. The manual usually has the beep code in it, though.

A few times now my E5440 will give a low beep... then a few seconds go by, and another beep.  It just happened a minute ago - only two beeps this time.  But I think it happened a few days ago and beeped several times with the same pause of a few/several seconds in between the beeps.  It's so quiet that before I've thought I was imagining it.  But this time I was sitting in front of it typing.
There are no pop-up notifications on the screen anything is wrong, such as the 'disconnection' sound when you remove a portable HDD, or your Wi-Fi disconnects.  Nothing to indicate what the beeps mean.  The laptop is working perfectly.  Battery is fully charged.  I can hear the fan turning and changing speed but it's 2:30am here with no outside noise and I can barely hear the fan.  (I assume it would be spinning up like crazy if something were overheating.)
I'm at a loss what it means.  Does anyone know?
I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit if that matters.

After having accidentally kick my Chassis, I've noticed that there's a high pitch whining/beeping/screeching noise coming out of my HDD.

I opened my case up to make sure if it was the HDD, and im pretty sure it is.
Everything works fine, it's just the noise is really annoying. It really only beeps/screeches when there's med-high activity on my HDD.

Is it gonna go on me? I've backedup all my files onto my secondary HDD.

Hi there

I am very new to all this, any help much appreciated.

When i use Nero to covert and burn an avi movie, the audio is fine but the aspect ratio is out.
So i use tmpeg to convert the avi and get a correct aspect ratio , which is fine, but for some reason ANY VCD I BURN WHERE I HAVE CONVERTED WITH TMPEG i have an audio click/ beep noise through out the vcd. I have even used virtual dub to convert the audio to wav any use that but no difference. I have checked the file after converting with tmpeg and it sounds fine, only when burnt to cd i have the noise, but as mentioned before- any thing burnt that hasnt been coded with tmpeg the audio is fine.(SO ITS NOT THE DVD PLAYER)
I haven't changed any audio settings , could that be where i need to look.
Hope someone can help.

A:vcd annoying beep/click noise HELP PLEASE!

don't use nero

just so i understand:

1.aspect ratio goes screwy when using nero to directly burn avi to vcd
(as you've found, nero is not primarily an mpeg encoder, good idea to change to tnpg or other software specifically designed to encode)

2. using tmpg to encode from avi to mpeg works fine

3. playing the resulting mpeg on your PC - the sound is fine

4. burning tmpg mpeg/vcd to cd produces a click/beep sound on audio

- are you using the standard vcd templates with tmpg?
- have you tried a different burning program?

suggest trying vcdeasy - the free version is now limited, but you can still find (as the author suggests) the unlimited free version on the web - it's version 1.1.5 or - i found it on tucows

see vcdeasy will burn a clean version - then you know it's nero

if the sound error persists, then it's a tmpg setting OR the original avi itself (ie ac3 audio or another codec)

you might also try http://www.dvdrhelp.com for additional tools, guides etc to make sure the whole process is being done correctly

Hi all you experts!

A friend asked me to repair his laptop after his harddisk went down (totally dead), so I got a new WD harddisk and changed the old one with the new, installed Vista and it's all running fine, I just encountered one problem there's some sort of beeping sound from the laptop, but only when the power cable is plugged in and there's no running processes.

It's very strange, when i scroll the beeping sound stops, when I stop scrolling the beeping sound returns. First thought that it was the harddisk, but the sound comes from within the center of the laptop (keyboard, maybe RAM) but if it was the keyboard it would beep also on battery wouldn't it?

I have never heard of a similar problem and I don't know wether it did the same before, cause it couldn't boot.

Hope someone out there got an idea of what it could be.

I am trying to help with a Dell Inspiron 5100.
The computer was running very slow and I've made a bit of progress resolving that. I think it needs some more RAM and I'm not sure if that could be at all related to the following.
The problem now is that after running for few hours, then shutting down, then trying to turn back on:
1. light comes on indicating computer is on
2. the computer makes 2 beeps
3. wait...black screen
4. wait...black screen
5. and so on

This does not happen everytime trying to start the computer so I'm really at a loss. I've read about overheating in this model which would seem to make sense but sometimes this will happen after the computer has been off for a day or so.

At a complete loss now.

Any assistance much appreciated!

How do I turn off the beep noise that come from the inside of my laptop? (NOT the beep that come out of the speaker or headphone!)
It's getting on my nerve. I'm unable to disable it.
I tried disable it from
and setting the value of Start from 1 to 4, but the laptop still beep! (The beep doesn't come out of the speaker or headphone. It seems like it comes out of the laptop. Even if I plug my headphone/earphone, the beep come out of the laptop, not the headphone/earphone)
I just want to disable the beep. (I'm not talking about the "default beep" in Control Panel -> Sound.)
On the other side, my computer is working fine. It's just the random beep that annoye me.
(I'm using Windows 8.1, and there is no "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" in device manager)

A:How do I turn off the beep noise from the inside of my laptop?

When does this beep occur?
How often?
Are you doing any specific task when this beep occurs?
There is no such default, random beep built into a Windows 8.1 system (or any other Windows OS for that matter), so I honestly have no idea what it is at this time.
How old is the system?
If it's not coming from the speakers, where do you think it is coming from?
Can you record it & zip up/upload an MP3 file?
Regards. . .

Hello again......

I got a new mouse last week (logitech g700). I wanna put this in here because this issue has only occured since Friday. The mouse can be wired/wireless. I always use wireless...

The problem I have is
A) If I scroll to fast, or use the hyperscroll feature of the mouse, the laptop would send out beeps through my speakers or headset.. whatever I am using. I stop scrolling, the beeps stop coming. I start scrolling again, at any speed, the beep occurs again. To go along with this.. The cursor/laptop becomes VERY slow when the beeping happens... NOTE: This does not happen all the time... I shrugged it off until what happened next:
B)This only happened once (about 10minutes before i posted this) When I turned my laptop on and right after everything was booted, I tried to move/scroll my mouse, and the beeps happened. This time, my computer was lagging all the time (i couldn't even bring up taskmgr to see anything)... I restarted my laptop and now everything is working good...

At this point I am uncertain if its the mouse or other hardware or a windows 7 thing.

Thanks for the help.

the next time it happens I will record the beep and post it.. it is not a windows beep i heard before.

Hey guys,

My HP Pavilion dv6 3132tx has been making a beep and click noise every now and then for quite a while now (4 months +).

The noise is a beep (lasting around 1/2 second) followed by a click (and sometimes it is a beep followed by another beep of a lower tone). It happens when I am logged into windows and there are no beep codes on startup, the speakers are muted too so it's not a background noise or anything. There also does not appear to be any pattern and the beeps occur randomly, whether it be me gaming or browsing the internet.

I have tried checking the hard drive for errors by using the bios hdd checking tool, chkdsk and hdtune. All of those said that the hard drive passed so I have no idea what the problem could be.

Thanks in advance!

Diagnosis of Monitor Blank Out:
My Monitor randomly blanks out, normally after leaving my computer on for about four to five hours. Sometimes it will not blank out for several days, but every once in a while. It will just go BLACK / BLUE / GREEN / ORANGE. Just a screen full of a single color.

Now, while this happens, I noticed that it should only be the monitor. Because I created a text file whilst it was blanked out. And then I wrote something in the text file and saved it. When I restarted my machine. Everything was still there. I can even reset the machine by keyboard when it blanks out.


Diagnosis of Random Beep Noise:
Two months ago my machine started making random beep noises. This too, only happens after several hours. My machine runs perfectly otherwise. However it seems to be coming from my DVD player. I do remember one time I dropped my computer and and the DVD player came out. But it didn't make the beeping noise until two months later.

The DVD player runs perfectly. And it only beeps three to four times per week. It could possibly not be the DVD player at all. I don't know what it is. Does the computer make beeping noises when it overheats? Maybe I there is dust in the fan?

Hello johnlusf and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.These types of "beep" can be caused by many things like applications or system services that cannot load properly. In some instances, there might be an error message showing in the Event logs.The HijackThis forum deals exclusively with virus and malware issues. HijackThis does not have the capability to analyze performance, hardware or application issues. For these types of issues I would suggest posting to the Windows XP Home and Professional forum.The techs in that forum specialize in matters pertaining to the operating system, performance and applications. Let them know that you have been to this forum and that no malware was found.When posting to any other forum, do not post a HijackThis log or the post will simply be moved back to this forum for infection analysis.

A:One short beep, one long beep

Is it possible you are hearing 1 long - one short?
That might indicate a BIOS CHECKSUM error, depending on the brand of BIOS.

You can try a ClearCMOS procedure (CLRTC is the same thing):
Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time.

Hi, Today I replaced my old graphics card with a new GeForce 9500GT and also added a new Kingston 2GB Ram Card. I installed both of them then restarted the computer, since then it has only powered on and playing 1 short beep then 1 long beep. I've tryed everything I can think of ranging from taking out everything new and putting it back to before I added the new items to completely taking out all 3 RAM sticks and reseating them. I'm not sure how a brand new unopened 2GB ram stick that fit perfectly and a brand new right out of the box graphics card can cause a problem like this. I've been through the ins and outs of the internet trying to find a solution but nothing has worked. Hoping someone can think of a unique way to fix this or how it could have possibly happened in the first place. I dont buy anything used everything placed inside my computer was/is brand new when it was purchased. Any help/comments on solutions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

I turned my wife's computer on and the screen didn't even flicker and all it does is beep at me.
I tried removing on componant at a time and started it after every removal.
Still beeps at me.
Until I got to the CPU. It stopped beeping at me. Of course, every other piece was out of the puter, so I'm not sure if its supposed to stop beeping or if thats the problem.
Any ideas?

I just had a "search engine redirect issue" fixed by "Gringo." One thing that is different now is at windows start-up, this laptop makes a BEEP TIC (Higher in frequency than the BEEP) vs the BEEP BEEP sounds I've had for ever. The computer start-up sequence is very slow as it takes minutes before the computer is ready to be used.

During the virus removal, a few times the reboot start-up sounds were BEEP - TIC - BEEP (again the TIC was higher a higher tone and faster than the BEEPs). What do the different sounds mean?

I'll start another thread requesting help to fix my computer problems.


A:BEEP Tic vs BEEP BEEP at start-up

What is the make/model of the system?

A few days ago, I made a thread about beeping noise from my laptop, but looks like it's not a beep sound because I went into my laptop BIOS and disabled the beep sound.
Now, my laptop is still doing the same noise. It can't be the beep sound because I disabled it. I tried to muted the volume, but it's still doing the noise/buzz/beep randomly.
I don't know where that sound come out. I checked drivers' update, they are all up to date..
What else to do?

Hi everyone,
So I have this annoying problem.
People where telling me I they keep hearing this weird random digital beep.Never heard it until today I put on listen to my device in the audio settings. And now I was able to record the beep.
So I guess it must come from my microphone. (sennheiser pc360)
My headset is hooked to the frontpanel of my desktop with a jack. And when I use the backports the beep doesnt occur. I have no idea how to reprocude the beep, and it's totally random imo. Anyone got a clue what this could be? and if there is anything I could try to fix this.
I really like using the front pannel for my headset. Any help/ideas would be welcome! The beep recorded:

This problem has just occured to me today. I have my computer set up where a person needs to enter a password to get into my BIOS or have the computer boot up. Normally, when I turn on my computer, the "enter password" comes up immediately. It was delayed, and for a moment I was thinking I wasnt going to be able to get into my computer. It looked like it said it didnt detect my hard drive or something. All I know is that I got two quick short beeps(sounded internal in the computer), THEN I got my normal POST beep. If was a POST beep problem, the beeps would have sounded the same. But the 2 beeps I heard before the POST beep sounded shallow and tinny, not the same type of beep my POST does. I have heard my POST give me errors due to improperly installed vid card, so I know what the beep sounds like when there is a problem. I hope this doesnt mean that my hard drive is going to crash. I have no clue what this means, all I know is that this has never happened before in the past. Any ideas on what it could be? My system specs are:

AMD 1 Gig athalon processor
A7V133 Socket A motherboard
128 Megs of RAM
Windows 98 SE
(i scanned for viruses and found none)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Weird beep at bootup may be a problem,..please help

Beep codes are specific to the motherboard's bios. See what type of bios you have and then look up the beep codes for it (at many different sites on the net) It sounds like you got 2 short 1 long, see what that means

Okay here is my scenario. I started my job last year, so I have had to deal with this problem for one year. When I come to work, the first thing I do is open up Internet Explorer. Everything is messed up. The font is abnormally large, the colors are wrong, and on certain sites, the text overlaps badly. After about 3 minutes, there is a nice internal beep. The top of my browser and the bottom of the monitor(where the start menu is) flash black, then everything is back to normal. This also happens in my Outlook e-mail and other web browswers too. I have Windows XP on my computer. This problem happens everytime I restart my computer, but now it is happening everytime I log out and then back in. The funny thing is that I just got a new computer and I have the same problem that I had on my old computer. I tried switching out monitors and the problem still exists. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
