My laptop is beeping at me

Every once and awhile my laptop beeps at me for no apparent reason.  Nothing ever happens when it does.  Does anyone else have that problem or know what it means?

Re: My laptop is beeping at me

Just this evening, my laptop started 'beeping' constantly - a regular 'pinging' sound which occasionally misses but is continuous, starting a few minutes after logging into Windows.  I purchased my laptop just after Christmas 2010 and have not had any other problems.

 

Any suggestions?

Re: My laptop is beeping at me

It could be one of a couple of things.

 

Eminent hardware failure lurking around the corner.

or

Overheating can do this too.

or

An update recently changed your sound drivers, which your can restore WINDOWS

to back before the update was applied.

Re: My laptop is beeping at me

Strangely, this morning the beeping has disappeared.....  It will be one of those unsolved mysteries - but thanks to Homerepairman for a quick response with some suggestions.

Re: My laptop is beeping at me

I have this same problem on a dv5-2045x that I bought a month ago. It pings or beeps non stop in the sleep mode only. It does not beep in the hibernation mode. It sure is annoying.
