    Hey Hey,

    I'm not usually one to flame... at least not these days.. and seldom twice in the same day to the same user... but for ****s sake... Do you know anything about computers... do you CnP and accept it as the truth?

    How does this apply only to XP users? I'm assuming you're talking about the beeps that come from your computer on start-up...They vary based on a number of factors.. primarily BIOS manufacturer, if I remember correctly, It also has nothing to do with your operating system...

    You can't definitively give an answer.. although I think it would be rather cool to see Windows XP tell you that your motherboard or CPU is bad... that'd be quite impressive... Come on dude.. think a little... this bullshit you're posting is a waste of everyone's time..

    Go read a ****ing book and come back when your IQ has reached 1.

    HT~ has a point,

    There are three sources of sounds on your PC.

    1. The BIOS

    This is made up of beeps. DEPENDING ON THE BIOS MAKER AND VERSION this can vary from about 5 to as many as 114 sequences.

    Obviously, as the BIOS boots before the OS, the OS is totally irrelevant

    2. The OS

    Windows has a variety of sounds, most of which can be reset or replaced by the user from within Windows.

    3. Applications

    "You've got e-mail" and the like.............I once changed a friend's AOL to say "Hey, some f*****s sent you more junk mail"

    So, #1 is set by the supplier and the other two you can change as you like.
