    So the PC I'm working on has started to beep twice (almost like a heart beat?) Not sure what's causing it. Advice will be appreciated!

    Currently Running Windows 7 Enterprise
    CPU - Intel i5-3470 @ 3.2GHz
    12GB RAM
    HP Compaq

    (Unsure of any other specifications as it's a Work PC, sorry)

    Thanks in advance!

    What's the exact model number(M/N) and product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on that "HP Compaq"?

    What exactly did you do to it before it started having the repetitive 2-beep issue?

    This is what concerns me.....and it's running Enterprise. Is this PC at your place of work?

    Yes it's running Windows 7 Enterprise. It's a work PC that I use for excel and monitoring cameras.

    The model is a HP Compaq Elite 8300.

    The beeping occurs randomly for about 10 minutes and stops on its own. The PC seems to lag slightly when it's beeping though.

    I understand it's running 7 Enterprise.....my question was/is - is this PC at your place of work.

    It's a work PC does not answer my question.

    Short term answer is that it's not detecting the removable drives (floppy/cd)

    Does the machine turn on / go into windows?

    If this is your Personal PC.....there is absolutely no reason you should be running the Enterprise version.

    If that's the case .... then the user should be able to go into the BIOS and disable those drives.

    If you read the post, the OP said it's a work PC.

    The other code that it could be is that it's a memory issue.

    But I would first before all of that would be to change the keyboard out. I wonder if you have some keys that are stuck.

    To you and me that may mean it's at his place of work. But time after time users mis-state what they really mean to say. So I was just trying to clarify.

    If it is at OP place of work....then the issue/problem falls to the IT department of said place of business.

    You didn't provide all the information that I requested in post #3.
    Thanks though for confirming it's a HP Compaq Elite 8300.

    According to its marketing specs and where it was purchased, it appears it originally came with one of these operating systems:

    To add to what James said, 2 beeps appears to be associated with its floppy disk drive - if it has one.
