  hugeb 14:21 06 Apr 2003

I seem to have a setup problem in that sometimes when I click on a link within a web page all that happens is a beep. I don't connect to the link. Latest problem happenned when I tried to register PSP5 and can't get to the registration page. Any ideas?

Is it like a "BIOS Beep" (Loud Noise and constant note) or "Windows Beep" (Varying noise, not loud)

ThisNameIsMine...............Its just a single note...quite loud and always the same. It does not happen with all web sites......just the ones where I want to link to another part

have you or someone else installed a popup- stopper?

It sounds like a BIOS beep which could indicate a hardware fault. Is it a PC Card Modem or in-built?
