Windows 7: Sudden 'ding' sound

Sudden 'ding' sound

This PC does not surf the net and only connect to the internet to install windows updates and other important updates that the program will automatically update.

Recently while this PC was doing its routine updating, it suddenly emitted a soft 'ding'. The PC have just finished downloading windows update and the HP assistance support just started and is searching for updates when the sound first appear. After sometime when nothing is updating or searching there was another 'ding'.

Is this something to be worried about?

Is it a pleasant sounding ding? Or is it an off key kind of ding? If it sounds good I would not worry about it. Especially if there were no error messages.

I recently did a clean install of Win 7 Pro 64 bit. There were some issues requiring repeated formats and reinstallations.
