It's hard to describe this noise but it's something like a duh-duh sort of noise.

This looks like my problem here but the answers didn't work:

Keep the Volume Mixer open (right click on speaker in your taskbar> Open Volume Mixer) and watch it when the sound goes off. You should see a spike under one of the running applications in the mixer. That will tell you what's creating the sound, and we can move on from there.

First thing that comes to mind would be the sound you get when you unplug a USB device...Try unplugging all the USB devices and see if the sound goes away. If it does then start plugging them back in one at a time and use that to determine which USB device is failing.

I muted system sounds in the mixer but I am wondering if there is something wrong with the speakers as they fell on the ground a few weeks ago and they are the only things that have remained from my old Windows XP.
