So my computer has been randomly making the Windows 'notification' ding sound, usually when I have just shut it or sometimes when I reopen it. No clue what's going on. Any ideas?

You may want to just turn the annoying dings off. Seems easy enough by following the instructions in the link below.

The notifications are already off, but it's still making the sound.

I'm no expert but could it be the 'beeps' from the BIOS/motherboard?

Sometimes certain websites ask you to allow notifications which can cause dings to happen randomly and if that's the case then you'll have to block notifications from Browsers, for example in Chrome it is under content settings.

 

But is it a ding like a bell? Or a beep like a movie heart-rate monitor?

It's a beeping like a bell. It's the Windows notification/error sound for Windows 10.

Is the one at 8 seconds in this....All Windows 8 Sounds - YouTube

 

Have you actually reviewed the settings as described in the link I posted....How to Disable Notification Sounds in Windows 10

Just a thought...it could be the sound got activated through an update.

No, it's none of those sounds.

 

I know notification sounds are turned off via the System screen, but I'll check under the Sounds screen.

Please, let us know what's the OS you have, also check Startup items out to see what's runnng when you start your computer (win 7 : msconfig->Startup;  win 10: Task Manager->Startup)
