Folks,

I've got a small but annoying problem. I just formatted a new 40GB drive and installed XP Pro from my licensed CD, went thru getting and installing SP2, plus a ton of anti-spyware SW (Adaware, SpybotS&D, Spyblaster, etc), and all my programs, etc.

When I turn the computer on, it beeps, once per second, for about 20 seconds, then the normal startup occurs. Computer works normally and it boots nice and fast due to the fresh, newly installed system, but the beeping is unacceptable. Is there anything I can do to stop it, besides disconnecting the beeper inside the case?

Thanks!
