    Default An odd annoyance

    My computer has started ringing. A double ding ding every minute. It makes no difference if there is an open program or not. Nor does it matter if I'm touching the mouse or keyboard. It's starting to annoy me.
    It started when I was uploading to Photo Bucket if that's got anything to do with it.
    Any ideas?

    Have you got a wireless printer?? Does it sound like when you plug something into a USB port?

    You tried adjusting the volume of the PC speaker, to make sure it's coming from your PC?

    Heh, I once thought some random beeps was my PC going insane, turned out my UPS had gone faulty.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    SO I guess that means that we should be careful...
