Hi All, My PC has recently started emitting a Chiming noise in the background without any input from me. It's the kind of error sound you get when you try to click on something on the Desktop when you first should have closed the window that's open. The noise is like a 'Gong' or 'Chime'and it happens at different times. At first I thought it was my email received message, but it wasn't. There seems to be no activity that I can connect it to. At times I get two or three chimes within a few seconds of each other and at other times just a single chime. I can be using my PC for an hour or more without any problem when suddenly a chime rings out whilst I'm doing nothing. I wondered if there was some sort of Malware working on my PC in stealth mode and it was trying to access my files. My Anti-Spyware shows a clean PC. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Graham, My Sounds are also turned off except for the Start up Wav, but thanks for the tip because it enabled me to locate the name of the Wav file which is causing me the problem, it's the Windows Default sound, which is listed as: Ding,Wav in the sounds folder. Cheers. rim rim
Starfox, Thanks for the link, it looks like a useful device and the price is right. Since your post I've gone into BIOS a number of times when I've heard the Chime and on each occasion the CPU temp' has been 30/32 degrees C and the fan speed has been around the 5900rpm mark. Cheers. rim rim
