I have a Toshiba Satellite A505-6971 laptop running an external TV monitor using the HDMI port.

The problem is sometimes during shutdown, a continuous alarm sounds. No error messages are involved either explicit or in the event viewer
The Alarm never occurs at any other times.

What could be the problems? What troubleshooting is needed?

does that sound happens if the TV is not connected?
is there a program running at shutdown?
do you have other devices connected?  if so -disconnect them before shutdown to test

Another thing...
If you are running Ubuntu or Linux vs windows, Toshiba Sound contoller does not like linux and you might be hearing the up volume beep sticking on shutdown, which happens on most toshiba models..
