    Does anyone know why my computer beeps occasionally while it's turned on? The beeps do not come from the speakers, but from the computer itself and happens when I surf the net or check my e-mail or if I'm not doing anything at all.
    This couldn't be connected to the errors I get from my Event Viewer...could it? BTW...is there a way to fix Event Viewer errors?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    Nope, it comes from the computer unit itself and sounds a bit like the POST beep, but I'm not starting the computer...the beep also occurs if I'm not doing anything at all.

    I've run Event Viewer and get the following warnings and errors:

    Warning---Source:W32Time---Event ID:36
    Error---Source:disk---Event ID:11

    Under the Application tab:

    Error---Source:nview_info---Event ID:1
    Error---Source:Application Error---Event ID:1000
    Error---Source:Application Hang---1002

    I get a rather large number of the Application Errors and Hangs. What do these errors and warnings mean? Microsoft is too hard for me to understand most of the time. Is there a way I can fix these?

    Hi did you run the memory test?
    Beeps at startup and during use are normally linked to faulty Ram or badly seated Ram.
    Most systems will show some errrors in Event viewer.
    EventLog Check.

    I've not run the memory test since I don't have any cd-r's right now. The beeping mainly occurs after the computer is turned on and not at start up. The Event Log program just shows me the same thing that the Event Viewer program did(i.e. The error and warning messages I posted earlier.)

    This weird random beeping can be rather annoying

    Hi http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
    Can be d/loaded to a floppy disk.
    "The beeping mainly occurs after the computer is turned on and not at start up" ??
    You could check that the Memory stick are set correctly.

    Unfortunately, my computer doesn't have a floppy drive. Also I wouldn't think it is the memory stick being loose because it's a relatively new factory built computer that hasn't had its case opened yet.
