T60, 5 beeps after windows has started.

2008-05-21, 8:06 AM
    Hi

I have a colleague with a T60 and she experiences that shortly after windows has finished loading (after log on and the programs that autostart have started) it gives 5 beeps. Eventviewer shows nothing and no programs have any sounds set so it is a bios beep, but what does it mean ?

The hardware manual says that 5 beeps means system board, but the PC seems to be running smoothly with no random crashes, so ???

Does anyone have an idea ?

Thanks

Hello,

Could the beeping be from another program which is running at startup, such as an accessibility program or a security program?
