    Really? This sounds like a brilliant opportunity to acquire perfect pitch.

    The rubber mallet works occaisonally, but in this instance you need one of these:


    You certainly won't hear the annoying beeping then...

    It's probably the device connect/disconnect sounds, just change it in sound scheme in control panel, sound, speech and audio devices, sound scheme to not play a sound. Does sound like a dodgy connection somewhere, but if it's not affecting your use of the machine, then just disable the sound.

    Yes but if it is a dodgy port then I might as well get it sorted - it is under guarantee anyway

    What did it turn out to be in the end, it sounded like it was to do with the powersave truning off hardware to save power and causing the hardware disconnect sound etc but with something going wrong with the powersave settings making it switch on and off again in quick succession.

    Not the powersave as I had disabled that, and then you would get the reconnect sound too, wouldnt you, which you don't?
    I *think* it is a usb port with a loose wire or whatever. Seems to me it is a hardware issue anyway as there is no notifications or anything anywhere which I would have thought you would if it was software.
    John Graham (bless) is sending me another T60 and I am going to swap out the hard drive. If it is a loose wire in the ports, then that'll fix it.
    I'll let you know!

    My rubber mallet would have fixed that.

    There is always the last test on the list.... the bounce test, second story window, concrete pavement etc. If it bounces then it was broken, if it doesn't bounce it is broken now and you have a definitave answer. I am very tempted to add it to then end of a procedure document somewhere.
