I have 2 computers connected to a router, in which one automatically configures its ip from a dhcp server and the other has a static ip set to connect to the router. When I turn the one with the static ip on, once the desktop fully loads up, the whole system starts beeping (keyboard flashes, beeping noise, etc...). Its not all too much of an issue - it stops some time after I disconnect and reconnect the ethernet cable, though I noticed that it does continue for a while even after removing the cable. Is this due to the computer trying to ping the router, or my other computer continuously pinging it.?

It could be a hardware issue or peripheral devices attached. Try removing or use another keyboard and mouse when booting your computer.
