Two strange things in XP...Registry and sound

Recently I have noticed that when I click on the speaker icon in the system tray once to make the volume slider appear, when I change it, my laptop makes a sort of BIOS sound. A while ago, it made the default Windows XP Asterisk sound. Does anybody know why this happens and how I can get my default sound?

Also, I have recently been getting a message that XP had to recover a bit of the registry from an old log file, and that it was successful. Why would this be happening?

Thanks :)
