Thanks for taking the time to help. HP Compaq running on XP; Intel Pentium 82801. Unfortunately, I don't perceive that your 3 suggestions fit the description. For #1, wouldn't that be during specified times, not randomly day and night whether I'm on the computer or not? For #2, I've checked the box, dusted the inside (with compressed air), nothing unusual there either. For #3, I'm no whiz on computers, but seem to have found that BIOS beeps are more like morse code--always the same pitch, with long and short. I actually found a video which demonstrated what BIOS beeps sound like---nothing like the "sing song" of 3 short high-pitched notes that I get. However at this point I'm more than willing to try to dig deeper and find out indeed if it's a BIOS. The PDF charts that I found so far did not describe my sounds--any idea where I can get an exhaustive list?
Would love to be in Texas right now--Chicago is grey and dull even though snow is almost all melted.
