I’m new to Windows 8.1 and am unsure what those frequent “three-beep” tones mean.
So far, I’ve noticed an ascending and a descending “three-beep.” The nearest connection so far is that my Maxtor 1-Touch external hard drive activates (ascending beeps) and deactivates (descending beeps).
Also, when I’m busy with other computer functions, the “beeps” alternate frequently between ascending (on?) and descending (off?). Why not just stay on?
If I’m relatively inactive, the Maxtor 1-Touch remains “off” – I think. Is there a timing factor here? Again, I’m new to all this. Comments?
