What were you doing at the time?

recently had a hard drive beep at me.

just reading a pca forum page, nothing else running, when a single bleep sounded. had this earlier but though it was the mobile but defiantly not the case as the mobile left in another room.

Could be Outlook telling you a send/receive has just been completed.

Could it be a warning that your battery is getting low? Have a look in Control Panel>Power settings.

but you'll need to consult your motherboard manual for your particular code.

In General, single beeps tend to indicate either a memory refresh problem, or a voltage inconsistency, but to be honest it's impossible to say for sure what this one means. Sometimes a motherboard will beep you when/if the processor overheats.

Open the case when the machine is off and check that everything is seated in its slot correctly, and then turn it on (case still open) to check that the fans are running properly.

Those temps are ok.

Have you run Ccleaner since deleting Realplayer - might be some left-overs to get rid of?

Did you check Power Settings in Control Panel?
