Warning Sound on Window 7 Keeps occuring

Hello all,

It just started today and at random times pretty close together, the Window warning sound would play and for a second, there seems to be a popup but then it goes away.

I have no idea what it is.

Any ideas?

You need to fill in your system specs completely so we can give proper guidance.
You have a custom build so I presuming you know what the system is.

Just what is a Windows 7 warning sound??

I updated the specs for the key components.

The sound is the sound that window plays when you have en error with red warning sign pop up.
It's the "Critical Stop" Sound in the window's database.

I think it has something to do with when I Launch ffxiv.exe. The sound would play every 15 seconds or so apart with a very small time that a pop up message comes up and then goes away immediately.

It also changes the current program i'm on.

I have also added the zip from the Diagnostic tools.

Can you show me a list of your running processes?

  1. Right click on your Taskbar
  2. Select "Start Task Manager"
  3. Click the "Processes" tab
Take a screenshot of that and post it here, maybe something is running that shouldn't be.
