Having problems with your IBM Lenovo ThinkPad X40 Notebook ?

Alarm won't turn off (unless I mute the sound.)

\015 I dropped my computer--not very hard, though. It seems to be working fine, but there's a beeping sound, probably an alarm, that I can't shut off. Please help!\015

Answers :

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012The beeping is telling that the laptop is not fine and wants you to do something about it.
\015\012
\015\012One of your memory cards may have come out of its slot or the CPU has come loose or something worse....get a copy of your manual and see if you have a beep code error list, if not contact your laptop maker.

Alarm/Sound My Toughbook has started making a sound that I don't recognize. At first my power source was pulled out while the computer was on. When I turned it back on an alarm sounded then changed to a continuous "dotting" noise (like a machine gun) and will not stop. All files continue to function properly and I've turned off the alarm notifications and muted all sound, but the noise persists. ANY HELP???
