Hey guys I have a laptop VGN-CR32G/W and in windows it randomly beeps every few hours sometimes just once a day. Its a very short Beep, CPU and HDD Temperature are fine... I didnt realise anything wrong?!!?

HDD 100F 38 degrees celcius
CPU 97F 36 degress celcius

I do work constantly on it tho and have Itunes Photoshop Firefox 5 Tabs and FTP client and alot of things opened. Internet explorer sometimes as well at the same time?

What could that be that short high pitched beep?

some beeps are caused by enabling, or disabling some Accessibility feats.
Like windows is full of shortcut keys.

Try pressing the (left)shift a few times (5 or 8 times) rapidly.
It should give you a beep, and give you high contrast for the visually impaired.
Same goes when pressing the CTRL a few times.

I generally disable all these feats, by also de-selecting everything in the settings knobs under the tabs(in Win.XP: Control Panel>>Accessibility Options).

See if that did some good.

You can also try to disable the system sounds.
