Windows 7: Getting a random beep on Dell Inspiron 1545

Sounds like the CMOS battery is going....

A constant beeping sound is another sign that your CMOS battery is dying. The final sign that your CMOS battery is going dead is that you'll receive an error message. The three main types of error messages are: CMOS Checksum Error, CMOS Read Error and CMOS Battery Failure. If you do receive this error, you can just leave the computer on for 24 hours to see if that recharges the battery. If you are still having trouble after this timeframe, you should change the CMOS battery.

I don't know if your motherboard will give you any info on the CMOS voltage so you probably won't be able to check it without opening up the case. And here's a pretty generic video as well in case you need a visual (it helps me )

I had a look at this a few times. I just had a few beeps this evening so I checked again when I knew the time it should show but I can't see anything in any of the logs.

That sounds promising and very easy to replace, thank you! I haven't noticed any of the other symptoms listed on that site but I generally have the computer running all the time, would the date problems happen when you turn it off? This looks like it's worth a shot though, cheap enough. I'm not sure where/when I will be able to find a replacement though, I live in a foreign country and I'm not fluent in the language and especially not with this kind of terminology!

Type "keyboard" into Start button Search box, open Onscreen Keyboard, see if using it makes the beep.

Enter Device manager, open Keyboard, click Driver tab, Uninstall driver, reboot.

If problem persists change your keyboard.

Report back as if this fails there will be more steps.

So, when I type On-Screen Keyboard it keep making noise. Then I tried what you said and didn't work. By the way (I don't know whether it's help) the noise come from the speaker, because when I turn the volume down, the noise disappears.

If it fails use the hardware tests in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 and work through the other steps to see if it comes up with a cause.
