im not so sure thats what it is.. becuase it started when i tried to a play a downloaded video… that and it stopped actually it was beeping for about an hour… but for some reason it isn’t anymore… but im very afraid of it comming back… that thing was freaky
weird thing is though, the avg didn’t come up with any viruses or anything… so im doubly confused
There’s a BOMB. I have no idea what it could be but you better get it checked.
try turning it off x
It is a “keyboard” problem. One of the key or keys is stuck in the pressed down position (in a switch, which is what a key is, this would be called the “closed” position or “on” position). If the computer is a laptop, you might have to take it to a repair tech, if it is a “desktop” detach the keyboard and substitute another keyboard. If that clears it up then you will know it is faulty keyboard.
nope all wrong… there must have been something wrong with the video… becuase after trying to delete it a million times and it telling me its in use by another program… when it clearly wasn’t… it finally got deleted… and then the beeping stopped… but i didn’t do anything to the keyboard, or anything else to the computer… it started beeping profusely when i tried to play the video (which didn’t play) and stopped eventually, for a few seconds, then started back up for a while, then stopped again, (this repeated several times), then i was finally able to delete it then it didn’t start again… but i still have no clue what the heck was wrong in the first place… i hope i don’t have a crazy weird virus or some other bad thing on my computer that avg is unable to detect (becuase it detected nothing when i scanned the file)
Some Video’s if not a ts-video file(dvd) format error on decoding the sound (the codex you have maybe trying it’s best and is not the right one…try GSpot (freeware)this will test any video file and tell you the video & audio format used and tell you if you have what it needs. I’ve had videos freeze and the sound stick at a sound bite. over and over Ctrl/Alt/Del to task manager and cancel
hope this helps maybe……….. david
i am totally confused. i was just scripting and my computer all of a sudden started beeping. no, it isn’t the sound it makes when you hold down keys on a keyboard. it sounds more like a siren. it goes beep BEEP beep BEEP and keeps alternating between the two beeps. it is coming from the internal speaker, not the external ones, so it is probably something to do with hardware, but i am not sure. can any one explain?
ls your keyboard still working. as your bios chip on the mother board will beep if you unplug the keyboard and the bios is not set to no keybord. this also applys to no monitor. as you may have the onboard moniter set to on but have a graphic card installed. as the bios is the first thing to start on switch on before booting the system, be it dos(disk operating system - to xp)it as no way to sound off but the on board speaker (a left over from word prosessers end of line (char 7) in code. in your script have you played around with the sound in any way and tested without a turn off sound command?
my scripts don’t have any sound commands, and my keyboard was working (well, i was scripting with it) and i have an in-built graphics adapter on my motherboard, but no other card. it happened again while playing The Sims though, and it kept playing the siren sound.
try taking out the graphic card? or borrow one. what speed is your computer as some old computer are not up to spec for newer games. the new game starts well but as the chip gets more to do it. overloads and the movements slow or sound jumps and sticks on a sound. maybe?
i have a 1.70GHz processer with 512MB RAM (32MB shared) and i don’t have a graphics ‘card’. recently the sims seems to run really slow, but only on a certain house. i don’t know if this could be related.
i havn’t encounterd that siren sound for quite some time so i hope that whatever the problem was, it is now fixed
large house (lots of detail? maybe? get a one gb stick if your running in xp
or if a slot empty add 512 mb this will seve your computer dumping data and saving to vertuail memory as your menory is most likly the problem….your a bit short on memory read side of box or book on game needs more memory …..best of luck
Very annoying, but Paul Buisman has a fix that works:
my pc (windows 7) was doing a short beep each second for like 2 days. Found out that its because i have 2 keyboards, one wired and the other wireless. The wired one felt behind my desktop, just picked it up and it stoped :)
[quote Anonymous]i know why if you do not have soundmax on the computer it will make it beep all the time
:funny says sit on the chair oh no! your asking sorry it is because soundMAX is not installed or you have the soundlaster sound card now funny says sit on the chair
Has anyone thought to check the pc temp. Could it posable be the bios over temp warning siren?
It could be but I doubt it. The beeps when starting are a warneing that something is not connected or a key is pressed down or there is a problem with memory. You would not get an overtemp beep right away starting up.
Its because theres dust inside the computer.
i got the same problem:(
There is a problem with memory i am sure of it
When your Laptop or Desktop has non-stop beeping, your computer is overheating, so turn off you computer in any minute, and turn it on again
Overheating or memory problem or keyboard problem.
I dont know which problem of your have
