Beeping noise after Windows 10 upgrade

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 I have this beeping noise on my computer. Sometimes it's a single beep, sometimes double.

I have tried changing system sounds, turning off notification sounds. Of all the system sounds available that were switched on for some function or another, the sound that matched was 'windows information bar'. This is what the beeping sounds like, but it is louder than when I press the test button.  I found every function that used this sound, and then changed the sounds to "none". Problem persisted. I then changed the sound scheme to "no sounds", but the problem is persisting. 

When I place volume on mute, the sound disappears, so it is definitely coming through the speakers.

I am running an Acer Aspire R14 core i7.

I have checked for audio driver updates

I have recorded the beeping and can upload if necessary. 

I would be grateful for any assistance, thank you.

Actually, I was not upgraded to the most recent driver. Trying to update the driver from within windows did not work so I downloaded it myself from the Acer website and installed the latest version successfully. I am going to have to see whether this fixes things. I will post again if this hasn't worked

Hi,

Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated. 

When the system processor or Random Access Memory (RAM), or hard disk is not working properly, it will give the system alert using the beep sound.

I would recommend you to check if the RAM and the hard disk are working properly.

Method 1:

You can also change the Windows Sound scheme as "None" and check for the issue.

a. In search, type Sound and hit Enter.

b. On the Sounds tab, select "No Sounds" under Sound scheme, click Save As.

c. In the Save Scheme As dialog box, type a name for the new sound scheme.

The new scheme is displayed in the Sound scheme box.

Check if you still come across the Beep sound.

Method 2:

Run the System Maintenance troubleshooter and check the status.

1.Open Control Panel.

2.Click on ‘search’ and type ‘Troubleshooting’ and select ‘Troubleshooting’.

3.On the left pane click "View all" and then click "System Maintenance" and run the troubleshooter.

4.Once the troubleshooter is run, restart the computer and check the status.

Also install all the Windows updates and check.

Method 3: Run the DISM Tool.

If the issue persists, I would have you run the DISM tool to check the system health and will try to restore the files. 

  1. Click on 'Start'.

  2. Enter 'Command prompt' in the Search box.  

  3. In the list of results, swipe down on or right-click Command Prompt, and then tap or click 'Run as administrator'

  4. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press the Enter key after each command:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth 

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

To close the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.

Note: The tool might take 15-20 minutes to finish running, so please do not cancel it.

Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you. 

Thanks & Regards,
AS

I also have an Acer Aspire R14 and have the same issue with the beeping. I have tried everything and the problem continues. The only way I don't hear the beeps is if I mute the laptop..

Hi Annu

 

Thanks for your response.

I ran the memory diagnostic tool. The results didn’t show on after I restarted, but I used the event viewer to find the results, and no errors were detected.

I ran wmic, diskdrive get statUS: status OK.

My laptop is three months old at most, and as I said, I did not have these problem until after the upgrade.”

I changed the sound scheme to “no sounds”, but the beeping has occurred again.

I ran the system maintenance trouble shooter and found no problems. The beeping reoccurred.

I ran the DISM as administrator, but I wasn’t able to run them in succession. When I entered the first I wasn’t able to run the second in immediate succession, but had to close the prompt and then run the other. Nothing significant happened in either case.

I'm sure you'll agree though that that is not a satisfactory solution.

I have the same problem, I get a beep every three seconds, the sound that Windows calls 'Device Disconnect'.

If I open the Device Manager I can see it flickering at the same pace as the sound.

I have been suggested to do something called re-set of the PC, but I do not like the sound of that. According to the description it will clear everything from my hard-drive.

Is there a solution to this other than reverting back to Windows 7?

I am starting to think that the best solution would be to revert to Windows 8

Today I managed to find the reason for my beeping.

It was an USB connection to my UPS. There used to be a program from which I could monitor the UPS from the PC, but maybe it was not W10 compatible. After disconnecting the USB cable from the UPS, the beeping disappeared.

The only remaining task now is to find out if I can get that monitoring program back and get it to work with W10.

Hi Annu

So did all the things you suggested, but the problem continues to occur.

I did have problems running the DISM in succession though as previously indicated.

Have you any further suggestions for me please?

I wanted to chime in - I too am having the same problem with Windows 10 on my Acer laptop. Just FYI, there is a thread going on the Acer site that seems to getting some traction:
