Computer Outputs a "beep beep" sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY?

Q: Computer Outputs a "beep beep" sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY?

As the title says my PC outputs a "beep beep" sound out external speakers. It is extremely annoying. I haven't the slightest clue why it does this. Its kindof i higher pitch beep beep. all my specs are on my profile.

Preferred Solution: Computer Outputs a "beep beep" sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY?

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.)

A: Computer Outputs a "beep beep" sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY?

== sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY? ==

Does that mean "one out of three times the wallpaper changes"? Have you looked in your Control Panel under Sounds and see if anything is set that might cause it?

Hey folks,

My first post on here but I'm in serious trouble. I got a "new" (to me anyway) desktop running XP today and found the audio hardware wasn't working. So I pillaged an old machine for its sound card, and inserted that onto the motherboard. Also connected the Aux and CD lines to the top of the daughterboard.

Since then, to my horror, the machine has failed to boot. All plugged in, keyboard working, screen on and being used on another box for this very post. All I get now is the usual chirps from the internal soundcard followed by a few very low notes, definitely depressing so I guess they're suggesting something's failed. There's no further action from the CPU, the fan still works, but there is no screen output whatever.

Have I fried the motherboard without realising?!

Also, ironically, the last failure tone was delivered by my speakers through the originally non-responsive audio hardware!

I'd love a bit of help on this one, because my knowledge of computers' insidey bits is pretty poor.

Many thanks,

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.

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.

Okay, so, before anything else... I've already gone in and changed my system sounds. Everything but a handful of sounds (Device Connect/Disconnect, Email) have been turned off.

However, whenever I open a folder on my desktop and click anything within that folder - subfolder, back or forward button, the "address bar" (not sure what else to call it - its the bar where your system/folder location goes, like Music > Country), I get this annoying little beep sound like someone hit a high key on a piano.

I only ever hear it when I have my headphones on, thankfully... but it drives me absolutely NUTS when I do have them on!! And I cant find a single thing in Sounds to turn it off. And I wouldn't even begin to know how best to Google it to find an answer that way.

Also, I am aware I can just mute my system sounds (I had it that way before for this very reason) but since Windows Live Messenger is now Skype and does not notify about new emails (nor do they ever plan to apparently), I need my system sounds turned on so I know when I get email.

So, if any one knows how to turn this ever so "charming" notice sound OFF, please tell me. Thank you!

A:Disabling annoying system/folder "beep" sound

Go back into Sounds and under Windows Explorer turn off "Start Navigation". That should do it.

OK so this happened twice till now.

I am doing some casual work on the laptop, then there's a "Beep" sound for like 1 second and then a "tek" sound similar to the closing of CD Drive but low in volume.
BTW The speakers were set on mute so the sound was not from the speaker, and there was no CD in the CD drive.
Everything seems to be working fine before and after the beep.

What could this be?

Running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate.

I have a friend that called me about his computer. He had just moved it and hooked it back up and when he turns it on now he's getting one continuous beep that sounds much like a "flatline", you know..when someone dies? lol I've only heard it over the phone so far and don't have details on the computer specs and such, but i was wondering if anybody has had this problem before and could give me an idea on what hardware might be the issue. I was thinking RAM originally like maybe it disconnected while moving it, but I had him re-seat it and it's still doing it. Thanks in advance.

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 did a post not to long ago about some RAM issues i had with my pc and i decided to try some new chips and see if it turned out to be only a problem with the actual RAM not the motherboard.. After i installed the new RAM and was turning on my comp, it came smoke from the "Engine room". I turned off the computer straight away and checked for any black spots or burned wires but could not find anything. After a cleen up inside from dust and other dirty stuff i turned it on again and no smoke this time, but now i get a error code from the bios. 1 long and 2 short beeps, going on and on and nothing will start up. The screen is not responding at all to the computer turning on so i cant even go into the bios. Tried to search the web for the error codes and what they mean but its so many different ones out there so i dont know what to look for.

The motherboard is M4A89GTD PRO.

Hope u guys can help out

I just bought a new ThermalTake ToughPower 550 watt Power Supply Unit (psu) with all the alarms and sensors.

It is barely audible, but I'm hearing this high-pitched sound that I've tracked down as coming from the psu. It sounds like... well... a bomb whisteling over and over again: wheeeeeeewwwwwwww, wheeeeeeewwwwwwww, wheeeeeeewwwwwwww. So quiet, I can barely hear it above the fans in my PC. Sometimes it goes on for fifteen minutes or more. Otherwise, the computer runs fine (I'm on it now), though I did just have to remove a bad video card that was damaged when the fan went out (overheating the PC and possibly damaging the MoBo).

Unfortunately, the "manual/pamplet" that came with the psu provides no information, and the ThermalTake website is still under construction, so I have no idea what this sound may mean.

Anyone have any clue what the warning sounds of the ToughPower indicate (power surge/spike, damaged and failing, low power?) And shouldn't any alarm be louder? The unit is barely two weeks old. Thanks.

A:Calling all "ToughPower" psu owners: Beep code(s)?

Beep codes are handled by your mobo I believe.

edit sorry misread your post. Can't be of help there. Might wanna call tech support, it should be free.

However, ThermalTake power supplies are on the list of bad PSU's I believe, if you can, return it and get a good model(Enermax, Ultra, etc).

Hi so I got a brand new video card and I'm having a problem with it. Specifics below:

Video card:
- MSI N750 TF 1GD5/0c

Gateway DX4870-UB21P
Windows 10 Enterprise x64

On boot, it gets to the screen where I can hit escape for bios settings etc. Mind you, I CAN see the video output FROM the new graphics card, so I know it's working. Anyways, I see that screen, and 3-5 seconds later I get the beep code (1 long, 2 short) for "Bad video card" on boot. What could be wrong?

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!

My laptop is Dell Inspiron 15 5547.

Intel Core I7 (Dont know what generation).

It happens when i open the laptop and fix the wire problem in WLAN. So I detached the parts in order...

Hard Drive
2x 2GB Memory Card

The reason i detached the parts because the wire of WLAN runs thru the monitor and i cant get thru to fix it unless i remove the monitor. Now when i put all the parts back in the descending order, i just got a beep and i got no display it just blank, I listen very carefully and got 4 beeps fading. Can you help me? Don't know what to do.

When an IBM compatible computer is first turned on, the hardware runs a Power-On Self Test (POST). If errors are encountered during this POST test, they are usually displayed via an audio beep or in the form of a code number flashed across the screen. With this audio code in hand, you can determine what part of the system is having problems and find a solution.

<small>The pattern of beeps whether its the number of beeps or the length of those beeps will give you an indication of the actual problem. Its a distress signal from the computer in a morse code like pattern. Unless you have a diagnostic card to tell you more about the particular problem, you will have to use the charts below to decipher the computer error and get your machine back up and running.

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.

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.

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.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

Hello, I need help troubleshooting the Thinkpad l440 of my roommate. Whenever she turns the notebook on, the screen remains black and a repeating error beep code is audible. 5 beeps then pause and another 5 beeps and pause and so on.Most of the time after some second oder even minutes it continues booting normaly and the OS (Win7 64bit) start up perfectly normal. Since the notbook isn't the newest modell and no waranty left, repairing in by lenovo service wont pay off.I already checked a number of things including CMOS Battery, lose flat-flex connectors, Ram etc.Than i tried to Update the bios via lenovo's utility through the OS .. this did not work with an errormessage telling me the bios could not be read.Now I want to do it via CD. What do you think .. might that help. or is the risk of comlpletely blowing up the machine to high in case the system cannot restart properly after updating the bios? We would be truelly grateful for some information or advices.Thanks in advance.GreetingsDaniel
