How often did/does it happen?  If it oly happened once, maybe you accidently had something pressing a key on the keyboard???

Does it happen when a page is loading or when there is no activity?

If you *HOLD* a keyboard-key down,
in order to send *MANY* characters,
*AND* the Operating System is "busy"
(i.e., a web-browser is "formatting" a large <TABLE>)
it's possible for the "keyboard-buffer" to become full,
because the (temporary) lack of resources
means that the Operating System is not extracting
keys from that "keyboard-buffer".
When that buffer becomes "full", you can get a "beep".

So you were moving the mouse and the sound was a "rapid clicking" sounds?  Does it happen randomly or on certain sites?

Ocassionsally, when windows is busy, you will get a number of rapid beep sounds. It usuallly happens with the keyboard but it can happen with the mouse. If you ignore the beeps and try to keep on working, you will generate a protection fault.

I did not read OTTA's answer. I never read the comments. I only read the questions. Otta's answer was the same, but I never read it.
