pc speaker - regular unkown sound

  JOHNNYBGOOD 15:16 09 Mar 2003

pc Pentium II with Win 98. pc speaker from switching on makes a da-de-da sound at regular aprrox 10 sec intervals. Nothing in Win sounds is similar and you cannot stop it. Anyone with any ideas?

Thanks to anyone who replies

Does it come on in safe-mode?

What is running when pc comes on?

Not wanting to worry you but I have heard that some intel chips play a certain classical tune when they are about to die - Beethoven's _fur elise_, or the likes. [At least I think I heard this, not dreamt it...]

Lu-tze, comes on in safe mode and normal mode. Only programmes in start up are Norton Antivirus and MSN messenger

JOHNNYBGOOD - go to start_run and type in msconfig

Then under the startup tab, check what is there - a lot of them can be unticked, but leave your AV, load power profile, and systray.

Reboot and see what happens.
