Windows 7: Warning sounds after start up.

Warning sounds after start up.

Just recently I have noticed that when I turn on my computer and everything is in place on the screen I get three sounds in very quick succession. About thirty seconds later this happens again and again about thirty seconds after that. (A total of three times). What does this mean? Is the computer trying to tell me something and how can I find out what is causing this?

I am using Win 7 Pro 64 Bit. NIS 2011 (Recently updated from 2010) and Microsoft Office 2007.

Any thoughts please?

Please add your system specs so we can tell what hardware we are working with

Hi Judesman,

Please install and run Speccy which will give us a little bit more detail about your PC. Post that information here.

I have CPUID CPU-Z on my computer. Will that provide the information that is required? What is needed - screenshots?

Hi,

CPUID will provide most of it - if you use Speccy, you can save the information to a text file and post it here (edit the text file first to remove your Windows key, we dont need to see that).

If you choose to use CPUID, see this thread for the type of informtion to post as screenshots:

Dont Know What Hardware You Have..??

Hi Judesman,

Sorry its taken so long to get back to you.

Thanks for the information. Do you know what BIOS your PC uses? This is the text shown on the black screen when you first start the computer......we need this to work out what the error codes mean.

Regards,
Golden

OK. I did a bit of a search on the Dell website for your model : OptiPlex960. I found the manuals here:

Documentation

But couldn't find anything about beep codes. However, it has some information about the diagnostic lights on the front panel of the PC (page 40). Can you cross-check that against the manual to see if its indicating something faulty?

Golden
