hi everybody,
i've installed windows 7 x64 on my laptop (hp tx 2620ej) a few days ago and it wont stop playing error sound every few minutes for no reason.
there is one device that wasnt recognized (wont find his driver), but even when disabled it the sound was still on.
ive tried checking running programs but couldnt find anything wrong.
what can be the problem?

Sure. Windows has a set of reporting tools that monitor what is happening with your system. If you go into the start menu, then right click on "Computer", then select Manage, the Windows Management window will open. If you look on the left side, you will see a tree menu. Open up the Event Viewer, and click on "Applications and Logs". It will take a few moments to populate. Once it does, then you can click on "Hardware events". See if anything shows up there. If not, go to Windows Logs and check under System and Application. If there is nothing there, go to the device manager (further down on the left side) See if there are any devices marked there as being a problem.

first of all, thank you for your help!

i've checked the event log according to the time of the last sound and i found the following error:

"The Application Experience service entered the running state." (event id 7036)

when i pressed the help button, its said that its ok but i still dont want it to play the sound. what can i do? i can i stop it from playing the sound?

I don't know how to remove sounds from an event without creating your own custom sound profile.
