hi yall i am having a mindblowing time with a series of two-tone beeps which starts straight after
boot-up. the only way I can describe it is (that it sounds like the old police/ambulance/fire engine) sounds.
the only time that it stops is when WINDOWS DEFENDER goes into schedule scan. back to the sounds thinking back to the good old days was that it was described as a DONKEY giving out HEE-HAW-HEE-HAW.
anyway back to the problem,hope someone can help! silver surfer :thumbsup:

Hi big-gw.
That two-tone alarm sound at boot is most likely a cpu overheat alarm, though why it would stop at a defender scan is a mystery. Making sure the cpu fan is clean and running would be the very first thing to check.
