Beep is beeping only once

I wrote the code
for i = to 5
     Beep
next i
but the computer beeps only once.
Why?

If this doesn't work then try using Timer to do the beeping in some time interval.    (Maybe the loop goes too fast.     Loop is finished even before the first beep finishes )

Create command button and a timer:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Timer1.Interval = 300
    Timer1.Tag = 0
    Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Timer1.Tag = Timer1.Tag + 1
    Beep
    DoEvents
    If Timer1.Tag = 5 Then Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------------

All the beeps are merged together.
Try this
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Long
For i = 0 To 5
     Beep
     For j = 1 To 10000000
     Next j
Next

Timer method works fine for me.
The lowest value of Timer1.Interval that gives multiple beeps on my comp. is 50. Everything larger than this works fine.
