I have a new HP Notebook which I got 4 days ago and it is inexpilcably beeping at random intervals. If I had to describe it, it sounds like a chirp or like a muffled, short alarm clock buzz. It only does one beep (except 5 minutes ago when it did 2 beeps consecutively), it started out at 5-6 beeps per hour and seems to be increasing slightly. I can’t really tell where exactly the sound is coming from but it is not the speakers (which I have on mute) and I can’t tell what conditions are triggering it.
I’d love an explanation for it, I’ve tried searching online and plenty of other people have reported a similar problem with HP laptops but they never seem to find a solution. Even HP support never seem to come up with an explanation or a solution.
I tried bringing up the BIOS and starting a Hard Disk Self Check, I did a quick one (15 mins or so) and a thorough check with took about 6 1/2 hours. The Hard Drive passed both tests. Ditto Memory. I’ve also tried updating all the drivers on the laptop and checked its temperature and that all seems fine. I don’t know if it is related but I was having problems with my Disk Usage, which was between 95-100% when I wasn’t doing anything, I think I’ve resolved that now. The notebook seems to be running fine now and my only problem is this odd beep.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
