Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Telephone ringing sound periodically coming from pc speakers

\015 I have a Dell Optiplex GX260 Desktop Windows XP SP2. I just reinstalled the os and other application software. There is no modem or phone line connected to the pc. Periodically throughout the day I hear a telephone ringing through the pc speakers. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

My guess is you are hearing a telephone ring .wav file that is being played as an alert for some software application you have installed on your system. Perhaps an email account is trying to let you know that new mail has arrived, or some such. Are you getting any kind of pop up notification window in the lower right portion of the screen when the ringing sound is played? If so, find out what program is notifying you, and go to the options/preferences settings for that program and you will probably find a sound alert option that can be turned off. Southwest airlines has a ding feature like this that alerts people when a flight they have set to search on is available, for example.
The only other place I can think to look is in your event viewer, (Rt.click My computer,choose Manage). Perhaps you'll see a corresponding entry under applications, but this seems unlikely to me.
You need to figure out which program is alerting you.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
