Awful sound on this Web page!!

  clock 09:27 28 Sep 2007

Logged on this morning to see what's new in the Forums and nearly jumped out of my skin when there was this "crashing" sound, not just once but intermittently whilst on the page! O.K. maybe I had my sound set a little high, but if the noise is part of some advert it's very distracting. Is it you??

No noises here ... check you don't have a problem elsewhere.

Morning Techonotiger! Thanks for the rapid response! Pleased to say the noise was only during the first few minutes and has gone now. Seemed to co-ordinate with an advert down the side of the web page, when a crane carrying a "can" made contact with a building and another "can"!!!!

Don't think I have a problem with my sound system, so what other problem might I have please??

Hmm, no problem apparently - I don't have that particular Ad on my PCA site?? On the right-hand side of my PCA site is an Ad for PCAs' Broadband Advisor. Nothing about a crane/cans?

Must have been that advert then! I only have the PCA Broadband site on the right now!

Why would PCA allow sound with an advert I wonder??

Will close this thread now,

Thanks again,

I thought I was the only one to get that sound! It seems to be just on this site and no other. It is annoying imust say. J.B.

Just logged on and ditto, nearly jumped out of the chair - it looks to be part of the ad with the crane that appears on the right of the page. Amazed no one at Advisor can hear it.

No noise on mine - and yes my sound was switched on and powered up!

You are not alone. For the last few days I have had a noise, similar to a metal drawer closing with a crash, but only when opening a thread. It is not happening today though!
