Windows 7: Ding Sound

16 Sep 2014   #1

Ding Sound

Hi, yesterday my tower started to make ding sounds. At first, it was just in IE, now in Chrome. I have been having trouble with my mouse. The sound is more intermittent today.

I tried using CHKDSK, but with no result. It looks like it is healthy.

I might have malware because those weirds ads are showing again.

Any more help would be appreciated.

Ads that are nasty ;-) Hard to explain. The dinging sound is getting worse. When I turn up my volume on speakers, I can really hear it.

Sound & Audio
Since I have my new Windows 7 PC it periodically emits an audio ding for no apparent reason. There are no audio or email settings that would account for that. Anyone have an explanation and cure for this annoying thing? Thanks. Hal.
