Some days more than others - and only since I moved to the Waikato
Is this sound like a european police car coming thru the computer speaker - ie: oooo ahhh - ooo ahhh ? - not thru the creative sound card - but the box.

Thought may have been software like zone alarm - Nortons A/V or Add aware - but have had them on board for ages?

Same with hardware - been there for years - Nokia ADSL Modem,(maybe something with the local exchange)

Manufacturer won't answer - so first reaction was - bios battery - or overheating? - but now dont think so.

Any ideas, Thanks - Simon

Could this be that "Boot Sector Virus Protection" in the Standard CMOS Setup is set to enabled?

Just a thought!

Sounds like a temp alarm to me. When it does it again if you don't have monitoring software reboot the PC and enter the Bios and check temps there.
