Cat screeching annoyance

  electraglide1808 18:31 19 Oct 2007

I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I've searched and can't find anything.

I have a very annoying intermittent cat scrreching sound on my PC - its quite shocking when you're working away quietly with the volume turned up.

It has also now started happening on my wifes laptop.

Any ideas...........please.

Many thanks

Pick up your ordinary telephone and dial 0845 604 3090
Is that the sound that you are hearing?

If so then your pc maybe attempting to make a dial up connection to the internet.

No this is very definately a cat screeching.

Do you have any Fax Machines?

No we don't have any fax machines. As I say this is definately a sound clip of a cat screeching.

Do you have a cat?When was the last time you saw it?

ha - yes we have 2 cats - we have a dog as well that starts barking everytime it happens - I'm assuming its a virus but I can't find one single reference to it online anywhere.

if it happens on the laptop as well that kinda rules out any hardware probs (fans etc) but I would be inclined to take the side off your pc and listen to see if I could tell where it was coming from.

The sound is coming from the speakers - it doesn't happen when the volume is turned down.

Turn the Speakers off until you need them. Other than Start up sound, when was the last time you heard anything good come from them?
