Hello from Thailand. This is my first posting here.

Just recently I've assembled my new system:
OS - Win XP Pro SP2 and IE v.6
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2000MHz
MB - ASUS A8N-SLi Premium w/(2x1024) 2GB Corsair DDR 400MHz
HDD - 300GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 16MB SATA-II NCQ
VGA - ASUS eXtreme Nvidia GeForce N6600GT 128MB DDR3
PSU - CoolerMaster Real Power 550W
Case - CoolerMaster Centurion 532

My problem is the lack of a beep sound when I make a copy with the Ctrl-c (combination on my keyboard). It is probably related to the clipboard. I have tried (install and then uninstall) many clipboard enhancement programs.
Currently, I installed a Clipboard Magic just to enable the beep (I don't actually use this program), refer to F.A.Q. at: http://www.cybermatrix.com/cmhelp.html

Q. I have set the beep on copy but it never beeps when I copy text. Why?

A. Assuming the volume in your speakers is turned up, try checking to make sure that the beep sound is defined. In Control Panel / Sounds / Check Sound Scheme, make sure the Default Beep is defined. e.g. "Windows XP Ding.wav"

Any advice on how to enable a beep on Ctrl-c without using the Clipboard Magic. I'm using a much better clipboard utility called "CoodClip". And BTW, my system makes a lot of beeps on a variety of other actions.
