Windows 7: Dell Inspiron 560 Error Beeps

14 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7, 64 bit Home SP1, Win 8.1.1 Pro 64 bit

To temporarily eliminate any Windows system function beeps, go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound. Click on Change System Sounds, under the Sound entry. Change the Sound Scheme to "no sounds" and then click Apply. That will eliminate any Windows system sounds or sounds from programs that use the Windows system sounds. Then see if you are getting any sounds. You can change the Sound Scheme back to what it was originally after you get done testing.

As I stated before: it does not sound like a typical motherboard beep. I'm thinking it might be something else. And since the display cuts out when this happens I'm wondering if the sound is coming from the video card?

Can you open up the case a check the next time this happens?
I'll do that if it happens again
