Windows 7: Error sound with nothing happening

Uh, no. Like I said, its the same sound/notification you would receive when unplugging a USB device. Its not at all similar to the error sound made when a key is held down.

Look in device manager see if you can catch it expanding the device tree.

Think we're onto something here.....

Spot on. Seems like its my Fingerprint Sensor.

Its an Authen Tec AES1610. Not sure what my next step is here, but I'm gonna start by trying to install some drivers that didn't arrive via Windows Update.

Went to Authentec's site and they have some Windows 7 specific software that I'm gonna try. Not sure if it includes Device Drivers, but its as good a place to start as any......

Might have better results if you do it in safe mode. (will stop that driver keep loading/unloading)

It is a hardware issue

HP tx tablets and possibly other HP laptops have some sort of problem with windows 7 so far. Probably because HP engineers designed the hardware to specifically work only with MS as opposed to designing it to just work regardless of the operating system. That is why it was more than a year before it was possible to install any debian based linux system on it. (i.e. ubuntu).


On a tx 2500 I have the same issue but all of my devices are accounted for in the device manager, so it must be from some bit of hardware. I suspect whatever controls the keyboard, sound buttons, or other keys which were notorious for not working properly on other OS's. I've updated the drivers but no luck yet. This is probably something HP is going to have to fix by updating their drivers.


As a side note to some of you with not so clever banners: Windows bashing is stupid in general but doing so on this forum is especially so.

I am having the same problem on a HP TouchSmart tablet. It seems I made a bad choice for compatability.
