Preferred Solution: Garantieerweiterung registrieren, für Leihen ein Ding der unmöglichkeit!

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.)


Um eine Garantieerweiterung, registrieren zu knnen, ist es ja ein unmglicher weg! Macht ihr es euren Kunden absichtlich so schwer???? Sieht aus als wrde Lenovo damit den Kunden absichtlich betrgen wollen. Die Geldeinnahmen der Erweiterung sollen vom Kunden erbracht werden (Preise bis ber 100?) aber die Leistung seitens Lenovo verlaufen ja nach 30 Tagen, weil es dem Kunden unmglich gemacht wird berhaupt zu finden was er sucht. Indem eine unzureichende Anleitung geliefert wird. "Um Ihren Lenovo Service zu Registrieren besuchen sie bitte:http://www.lenovo.com/registration" WAAAAAU sehr Informativ..... ......und vorallem genial ------> HTTP anstatt HTTPS:// Adresse/ hyperlink berhaupt mal richtig zu schreiben schafft Lenovo (achso macht ja Digital River) anscheinend nicht.

I recently moved my office to my house and when I plugged everything in I heard a sound while I was re-booting my computer. It sounded like a warning signal but I had never heard it before so it continued for about thirty seconds. I unplugged the tower and swithed the plug to another outlet the signal went away and all sounded normal except I get nothing into my monitors. I didn't drop or bang my computer in the move...I have removed the video card and re-set it but my knowledge is limited and I will only go so far. Have you ever heard of that happenning was it a warning and is the damage done. I just don't want to go out and buy another video card if thats not the problem. I appreciate any help.

A:ding, ding, ding

I would suggest that you unplug and re-plug every plug/card that you can in the computer. Go through them all and carefully unplug them. Check for any dust and then carefully plug them back in making sure they are all firmly in.

Q: Ding

Since I have my new Windows 7 PC it periodically emits an audio ding for no apparent reason. There are no audio or email settings that would account for that. Anyone have an explanation and cure for this annoying thing? Thanks. Hal.


It generally means there's some kind of system error going on in the background. Check your Event Viewer.

The "ding" is still there and the same thing shows up in task manager when it makes the noise. How do i get rid of this and is this really whats making the noise???

Im working on making a chat program in vb6.

I have unfortunately ran into a barrier...

I have made it where the chat program plays a wav file whenever it receives a message, but it also plays a windows "ding."

for instance.....

user types message they want to send, then presses enter ... Ding on the sender's end, not the receiver....

its like its a confirmation that the code executed or something.

anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of this?


A:Windows Ding in vb

correction on the above post......

the box that the user types in their message, it only dings when you press enter.. it doesnt ding when you actually press the "send" button.

Hi, yesterday my tower started to make ding sounds. At first, it was just in IE, now in Chrome. I have been having trouble with my mouse. The sound is more intermittent today.

I tried using CHKDSK, but with no result. It looks like it is healthy.

I might have malware because those weirds ads are showing again.

Hi all... brand new member with a question!
Every time I am typing and press the comma key then press the space bar, I get the Windows "DING!" sound and the cursor won't move. I have to then hit the space bar again to get the space, and thus the ability to continue typing the sentence. I know, it sounds weird. And it has DINGED 3 times already typing this question.
Let me explain again so I make sure I have phrased this correctly.
For instance, it JUST now DINGED after I typed "instance" and pressed the comma key. The comma appears but as soon as I hit the space bar it goes DING and no space is created after the comma. I have to hit the spacebar immediately again for the cursor to then move.
Did I explain well enough? To be clear....  I'll explain real time. As I am typing this right now, it JUST happened. I typed  the word "now" and pressed the comma key and the comma correctly appeared after the letter "w" and then I pressed the space bar but it DINGED and the cursor did not move thus NOT creating a space so then I pressed the space bar again and the space appeared and then I was able to type the word "it" and so on and so forth and I also get these lovely run on sentences.
I have done Google searches and maybe I am unable to properly phrase the question but I have never heard of anything like this at all.
Thank you in advance if anyone has any idea what the world is happening here.

This PC does not surf the net and only connect to the internet to install windows updates and other important updates that the program will automatically update.

Recently while this PC was doing its routine updating, it suddenly emitted a soft 'ding'. The PC have just finished downloading windows update and the HP assistance support just started and is searching for updates when the sound first appear. After sometime when nothing is updating or searching there was another 'ding'.

Is this something to be worried about?

A:Sudden 'ding' sound

Is it a pleasant sounding ding? Or is it an off key kind of ding? If it sounds good I would not worry about it. Especially if there were no error messages.

My computer has developed an irritating dinging sound for the past two days. It is the MS ding wav sound. It must be trying to alert me to something or wants me to do something. Problem is that I don't know what it wants. I have looked in "sounds" for an answer....no help there. It is the same "ding" as for "low battery alarm". I don't think that's the problem because the computer is only 6 mos. old. The best hint that I can give is that it only happens when I'm on the Internet.
Any thoughts or tips out there ?? other than shutting off my speakers that is.

Hello all you Windows 7 fans, I ran it for several years and then I made the mistake and took the free upgrade to Win 10.

After several months of problems and Microsoft support techs remotely tried to fix and try to get mt system working again in the windows 10 OS I have something of a mess a bit of 7 and a lot of 10 on my system.

Id decided to go back to Win 7, when I made the decisions to go back to 7 I bought a 480GB SSD and a new graphics card. What I was trying to do was to have a completely clean empty SSD that all I will install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on it.Most of the rest of my system Mobo, cpu etc. are relatively new.

The only thing I am unsure about is when support ends for Windows 7, I read things about extended support ending in Jan, 2020 I read others saying it is already toast done caput,, I also bought a newer graphics card,

EVGA GeForce GT 730 4GB DDR3 128bit Dual DVI mHDMI Graphics Cards 04G-P3-2739-KR

So can someone tell me if Win 7 is good unti Jan 2020 or done now????

I can't fit my system build in my signature so I will have to remember to add it to the end of each message in case someone needs to know what I have.
"Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz)

A:Ding a fresh install of Win 7 need a refresher

Windows 7 is good til 2020.

We will all have a party when they stop updates for windows 7, you don`t even need half of them.

Why can`t you fit your specs in the required area, no one else has any trouble doing it.

You`re putting too much in each items description, just put what you have, that`s it.

Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.4 GHz
Asus Z97-A
Corsair CX750
Corsair Vengeance 32 GB @ 1600 MHz


You don`t need all that other hoo haa you`re adding to each components description, but put what fits.

And a EVGA GT 730 ??? Seriously, the 4790K has better graphics.
I guess you never clean installed 10 ?

Hello everyone~ I hope i can explain this properly.On sept 1, i was searching for some 2d mmorpgs to play.. When AVG said it found a trojan on my computer.. After that my browser started acting up, and whenever i search on google and click a website i get redirected, or the page does not load. Sometimes while browsing you know those ads that say "congratulations "blah blah blah"", and make those ding noises? Well i was hearing those repeatedly every 1-2minutes.So i spent the last few days on my other pc trying to figure out what i could do to fix it.. Some people said it could be some "overlay.xul" or something.. But im not that great at the computer technical things, i just play my games on them.I found a site that suggested i download malwarebytes, which i did. I just finished my scan and quarantined 15 objects.So under my quarantine tab it shows the 15 files, should i click delete all? I think im still having issues because malwarebytes keeps telling me websites are trying to connect to me or something like that..

I have multiple systems that start to behave very strange.
First a week ago 1 laptop (Dell E6500 Win 7 Pro 64 bit) started to play the ding.wav every 10 seconds. I thought it maybe was caused by our Document Managenet System (DMS) Decos, integration tools, but today 2 desktops without Decos tools (Dell 980 Win 7 Pro 64 bit) started to behave the same.

All my applications are closed, so I have no idea where the sound is coming from.

Any Idea's?

Yes thats is a little strange
(This was an often problem before years with veeery old celeron computers)
Anyway lets try those...
First choose one computer who has the <<every 10 seconds ding.wav problem>>
Start task manager select the processes tab and start to End one by one processes.
End one process and see if the ding sound stops,continue until you find the guilty process.
Also try,in Msconfig go to startup tab and again Untik one by one startup programs.(Here you will have to restart each time for results)
Just a tip,some motherboard have the ding wav for high tempeture alert,but because you mention multiple systems i advice to check the problem in software.
And please post back with any results!

Published: April 12, 2005, 11:23 AM PDTBy Stefanie Olsen Staff Writer, CNET News.comAn organization created to set anti-spyware standards has folded, following internal turmoil and the abrupt departures of several founding members. The Consortium of Anti-Spyware Technology vendors, or Coast, was founded in 2003 as a nonprofit group of anti-spyware companies to help establish industry-binding guidelines defining spyware and a code of ethics surrounding the distribution of desktop software.

I recently did a clean install of Win 7 Pro 64 bit. There were some issues requiring repeated formats and reinstallations. The only remaining issue I can recognize is a wierd one - namely, when I turn off the monitor I hear a "ding-dong" sound from my speakers. If I turn on the monitor fast enough, the ding-dong stops. If I wait, the PC goes into an irretrievable sleep. None of these symptoms occur in the Safe Mode. I upgraded my video driver but the symptoms persisted. I've not been able to find a Win 7 compatible driver for my sound card - Soundblaster X-FI SB0467 (according to Dell/support).

Any thoughts/solutions would be greatly appreciated.

To help others b/c I just wasted 2-3 hours of my time & may still have to spend more time.
As USUAL with Window 8 BLEEPING UPDATES, it has screwed with my computer. This is an ONGOING issue every time there is an update & even sometimes with Windows 7.
This time after the update every 2-10 minutes I'd hear that ding sound you get like the asterick, when a new program is trying to access your Windows, etc.
I wasn't able to fix it & finally someone searched online & someone mentioned that it may be one of 3 pieces of software. Since I also use Malwarebytes, I decided to open it & sure enough, it wouldn't open.
After trying multiple times, I finally uninstalled it & the sound is gone.
HATE WINDOWS even more then I disliked them before. XP was ALWAYS WONDERFUL, it never screwed around with my computer.
I just spent almost an hour fixing VPN/DNS issues all b/c of this update.

Problem: my computer is occasionally, and with no discernible pattern, playing the "ding dong" sound that seems like some kind of reminder sound that would go with a popup (like Hey...you've got an appt in 15 minutes). Only there IS no popup...just the sound.

It happens even with all programs closed on a fresh reboot.

I have sat watching the Task Manager waiting to see what processes jump to the top when the sound plays. Only the sound process changes.

There is no timed pattern, though it is not any more frequent than about 5 minutes, generally.

I have run Ad-Aware, full scan, and removed anything it said to remove...even cookies. Still no joy.

I've even gone through the Windows Sound configuration to see what events might be set to use this sound, and NONE of the sounds displayed are the same ad the ding-dong sound I get.

Any thoughts on how to diagnose and fix this annoying issue?

OS: Win7 64-bit

Problem: whenever I right-click to copy something (e.g., in Word or Excel), the computer makes a loud ringing "DING" sound, like the sound that accompanies the "idea lightbulb" going off over someone's head in a cartoon.

The sound is coming over the outboard stereo speakers, NOT the motherboard "beep" sound from inside the computer case. This "windows ding" noise is clearly audible over whatever else might be playing through the speakers (like music).

I'm copying and pasting hundreds of items to verify data, and the DINGING sound is more than a little aggravating. How can I turn this feature OFF?

Already tried:
Control panel > Sound > Sounds Tab > highlight "default beep" > select "none" for sound from drop-down list > click "Apply"

This may have done something (or not?), but it did NOT stop the windows "DING" from sounding through the speakers every time I cut or copy something.

Thank you for any assistance,

A:How do I disable the Windows "DING" sound when copy/paste or cutting?

You could try going to Control Panel - Personalization - Sounds and set the sound Scheme as None or manually go through each sound and selecting None, then Enable and so on to find out which one it is (in theory it is Move Menu Item or Start Navigation but I can not approve).

Hi, My mouse is hanging after few minutes randomly and i hear a sound "Ding dong" and after 1-2 seconds it works again, I checked Event Viewer but cant find any error.

Thanks for any help.

A:Mouse hangs for seconds with "Ding Dong" sound

It sounds like one of the following:
A dodgy cable.
A dodgy internal mouse construction (e.g. bad soldering).
A dodgy USB port.
It's acting like you've pulled the plug and then reinserted it.

I have the same problem with my USB DTV dongle (dodgy internal construction).

I have a RunAs script that I intend to convert to an executable for use with MediaShout, on a computer running a limited user account at my church. I tested the script with an old version of Thunderbird Portable that requires privilege elevation each time it is run. The script worked at first, until I installed a registered copy of xNeat Application Builder. Now, all it does is flash the hourglass and emit the Windows Ding sound once every second until I press the Alt key. When I press the Alt key, the file's properties are displayed.

When this problem first emerged, I recovered Windows from an Acronis True Image backup. The problem was fixed until I installed xNeat again. I recovered the system a second time, but the problem persists, and I haven't installed xNeat yet! What happened, and how do I fix it?

A:VBScript makes repeating "ding" sound

Hi -

xNeat lists XP & Vista x86 only - not Windows 7 x64 - http://www.xneat.com/

The script may need elevated admin privileges - something like this -

When adjusting my volume by clicking the speaker in the tray it used to give me a sample ding after I moved the slider and let go of it. Now it's silent.

It had me thinking I had a no audio problem until I played a music file.

I went into sounds and looked for a reference to the conmand to see if there was no sound assigned but cannot figure it out.

A:No "Ding" Sound when Adjusting Volume In Tray

Hello Rock,

In Sounds, double check to see if the Default Beep event has the Windows Ding.wav file set for it.

Hope this helps,

I hope y'all can help me.

I'm on an Asus laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Recently, my computer has started making random 'ding' noises that don't correspond with any of my current programs. I know what noises Steam and AIM and the like make and it's not any of those. It's more of a system ding. I turned off 'System Sounds' in my Mixer, but it still happened.

It's driving me nuts! I ran avast! and that didn't find anything. I cleared out my Windows Action Center. Still dinging. The charger is plugged in and everything is fine from a hardware standpoint. I just can't figure out this dinging!

I've included a list of Programs and Processes to see if that helps. I honestly have no idea where to even start looking past this.

Thank y'all so much for your time!

My Thinkpad beeps when the mains plug is removed/inserted.

When I shut down I always get the "Windows XP Ding" (default beep) just before the shutdown music. I've had this happen on a few previous installs and Im not sure what it means or how to get rid of it. This is a new install of XP pro with all updates from "Windows Update" on a SATA RAID 0 array. Im not exactly sure when it started doing this but it was before I finished all the windows updates and before I installed any other programs.

Also, Im not sure if this is a problem or if it just never happened to me before. I have always just searched from the address bar in IE. For example, if I was looking for the WinZip website, I would just type "winzip" in the address bar and a bunch of sites would come up and I would click on the one that looked like what I was looking for. I've noticed recently that if there is a folder or document or .exe or shortcut on my desktop with the same name, it will open it or execute it rather than search the web for it. Not all that terrible, just annoying when Im looking for information on DesertCombat and it launches the game instead of searching the web.

My system:
mb - Asus p4p800e deluxe
cpu - P4 2.8 (oc'd to 3.03 using 10% bios setting)
RAM - 2 512 Kingston DDR PC 3200
Video - Radeon X800 Pro
HDD - 2 Seagate 80G (SATA Promise RAID 0 Array)
- 1 Western Digital 80G (EIDE)
LAN - onboard Marvel

A:"Ding" at shut down/Searching from IE address bar

The ding probably isn't anything that you should worry about, but ya never know. It is a part of your current windows sound scheme. The sound is assinged to an event.
Perhaps this is the event....?

If say the "Critical Stop" event is making that sound, then perhaps some program is critically being stopped due to windows killing the process when you shutdown.

As for your second question....not sure as to a fix to the problem.

This morning my computer started giving me an intermittent "ding" sound (like a high pitched bell). Sometimes a couple at a time. Sometimes two close together. I have shut off systems sound and I am still getting it. It's driving me nuts that I can't find out where it's coming from. Ideas?

I have the original Oxford English Dictionary CD from 1992. It's 16- bit, so on 64-bit Windows I run it virtualized. On Windows 7, it works great in Windows XP Mode.

But now I've just installed it on 64-bit Windows 8.1 Pro Update 2. It works fine after I install it, but then after closing and restarting the VM, the dictionary definitions and word list appear to be in "Wing Ding" fonts and so unreadable.

If I just reinstall the OED, it's okay again. But that means reinstalling every time I start the VM. The only reason for that VM is to host that old OED, so it's looking like I'll have to reinstall it every time I use it.

Any idea what the problem might be and what I might be able to do about it?

The OED program requires the CD itself to be in the optical drive; it doesn't work with the dictionary data file copied to the hard drive. So I have an ISO of the original CD on my host computer, and the VM's DVD drive is pointed to that ISO.

Again, works great until I close and restart the VM; then I have to reinstall the OED again, and then it works great until the next time the VM is restarted.

Any suggestions?

My computer (Toshiba notepad laptop) has recently started making a "ding" noise and it isn't correlated to any action I am taking (ie opening a new window, clicking my mouse, or any specific program). It happens at completely odd frequencies with no apparent cause.

I've turned my sound scheme to "No Sounds". I've done a search for spyware (nothing unusual). I've uninstalled any programs that were recently installed (it's still there). I've searched for all .wav files on my computer's c: drive and can't even find the sound that I'm hearing when I play all of the files. Nothing matches it.

Any ideas on some sort of program I could run that might filter out more sound files? Should I have searched on something else other than .wav?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ok so I am working on a friends' computer and it obviously has some system corruption going on. The system's default font is now Wing Ding, which if you know is nothing but a bunch of symbols. I have tried to do a system restore past the date when this problem started but nothing changes. I've done a lot of searching on google but nothing has worked thus far. Can anyone help?
