speakers? At my school (Windows XP) it comes from inside the computer, I think the hard drive. At my computer at home (Windows 7) it comes from the speakers... Why?

it is coming from the internal speaker inside the computer, not the hard drive.

But why doesn't it come from the speakers? Whenever you play a song on those computers it comes from the speakers, but when we do sticky keys it comes from inside the computer. Mine at home doesn't have an internal speaker, is that what your saying? Both are Dell computers.

Well I'm suggesting it definitely isn't coming from the hard drive, but a small internal speaker, is this really affecting your work?

Well, no. Also, I DO think it is the harddrive. Once I booted my computer and pressed F12 to get into the settings of the BIOS, and I accidentally pressed F12 again and it made a similar sound to the sticky keys, NOT coming from the speakers. BTW, that sound was telling me I was already in the settings.

usually some computers on boot make a little beep sound meaning that the bios and motherboard are telling u that everything is ok.if it makes a longer beep and continuous beep then something is wrong.
the sticky key sounds wont come by themselves, the sound comes from the speakers. if the sound comes by itself then there is something wrong

by the way....there is a little internal speaker in some cases it looks like a small circuit not a small speaker, most all computers have an internal speaker unless you choose not to install one. There is the post beep as was mentioned BUT if you are sure the hard drive is producing sounds other than normal clicking, I suggest you remove the hard drive and have it analyzed as it will be a one of kind. Perhpas your sticky keys work on the basic bios subsets so they do not use the external speakers, but rather the little internal speaker/hard-drive that you have.

here was another persons answer to a similar question.

The toggle key sounds are not like .wav files. You should check your system
speaker inside the PC Cabinet. See if it is there and set up properly or ask
your hardware vendor for it.

You will only be able to listen Toggle Key sound through your System
Speakers not with the ordinary external speakers.

Hope this information helps you, let us know!

My understanding is everything is working fine, but when you press sticky keys or F12, you are able to hear the sound on internal speakers at school and at home you say it comes out your external speakers? If you can't understand the concept of an internal speaker I'll have to defer. Maybe I just don't get it. Dying hard drives can make fluky sounds, but I thought you were referencing a buzzer or beep sound caused when pressing keys.

Right, there is a small speaker (there are a few types), but who's job it is to provide low level sound.) If that were not there you would not know an error was made by the beep.
