- Laptop makes random loud beep

loud beep - I would estimate 0.1 secs in length.
Shortly before it happens, it becomes unresponsive for about 1-2 seconds. It
happens very intermittently... typically once in every 5 hours of use.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400.
Any ideas what this is?
Re: Laptop makes random loud beep
Probably your operating system is set to beep on errors. If
that's it, obviously the next step is determining what the
error was, possibly isolated what you were doing at the time
or what subsystem was being stressed. You might seek newly
created logs (for whatever is applicable or scan the drive
for creation or modification dates) or check Event Viewer on
Win2k / XP.
