The Noise is driving me MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not sure this is in the right place as I am not sure what is causing the problem
I have a T60 supplied by the ever-lovely John Graham that is causing me a huge problem. Basically, it is making a noise as if it has detected something (I am stuck with wireless networks but it might not be) about every 30 secs.
It isnt a windows sound, it's not a beep, but a musical bing bong ...then three of the same bongs close together. If I had a piano I could tell you which notes
There is nothing in the tray to indicate that anything has discovered anything. It has an Intel Proset wireless card and I have let windows control it and uninstalled the software other than the WAN driver itself (thought I't got it, but NO)
I am one of the poor people who cannot image the T60 so it is pretty much as received - and has been doing this since the day I got it. the weird thing is, I have 4 others and one myself at home and I dont have this issue.
Does ANYONE know anything?

Is it detecting infra-red devices nearby?

Its not the device connected noise? And then three beeps indicating it has a problem and can't connect?
Maybe its developed its own intelligence and is trying to communicate with you? Morse code perhaps?

It is the machine detecting a new pc of hardware over and over and over again.

It's faulty, I have an HP NX6325 with exactly the same issue and for now it's languishing under my desk.

Does it project an image of Princess Leia repeatedly saying "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi - you're my only hope"?

It is actually the sound you get when you DISCONNECT something like a memory stick
(hadnt thought of that) - the connection sound is the other way around - low/high rather than high/low. And then you get the three low bongs. But I havent connected anything!!
I have disconnected bluetooth and infrared
As for morse, strangely enough at college I learned morse code and could once read it pretty fast! I dont think it is trying to tell me something...

So we're all in agreement? There is a loose connection inside the laptop?

ha ha - bit like "can you identify which child in your class is screaming and just delete that child"

Is it really a loose connection? I dont want to wipe it and reinstall windows and all the programs if it is going to do it again. As I said, for some reason I cant image it and so it would take a while

How about opening up device manager and looking to see if there's a device appearing / disappearing when it's doing its musical turn?

And having a decko at the event viewer?

What you need is one of these:
It's rubber, so won't leave any incriminating marks......trust me.

I can vouch for the use of rubber items - whoops, wrong thread - wrong forum even!
