Audiable tone sounds when some files and applications are accessed (the tone is the same frequency as the beep at bootup).

I am working with an HP Pavilion 8756C that emitts an audiable sound when the user clicks on some files.  This also seem to occur when some applications are started.  The is no consistancy as to when the tone sounds.  It occurs randomly.

The current BIOS needs to be upgraded.  Do you think upgrading the BIOS will fix the problem?

Did you set a system sound for Select, in Control Panel->System Sounds and Devices?

How do you know the BIOS needs upgrading? Doesn't sound like this is a BIOS thing, anyway.

Reply to comment #1:  The sound is coming from the small speaker inside the case.

Reply to comment #2:  I have not checked this, but I will, and get back to you.

Reply to comment #3:  The current bios is the original version.  I checked the HP website and have downloaded their latest BIOS version, but haven't had the time to install it.

Thanks for your comments,

The tone was coming from a Belkin battery backup/surge protector device.  The sound is present when the load on the power supply increases.  The user said the sound is present when she print.  It also emitts the sound when the monitor is turned on.
Clicking on certain file must have caused a load change due to the initiation of accessories, i.e. scanner, cd-rom, hard drive, etc.

I want to aplogize for taking so long to solve this problem, but due to illness I have had to curtail my activities.  I wish to thank those experts who offered comments on this problem.

Thank you,
Roger
