Ok.... I knew it would happen eventually, but here goes.
When I start the computer, all of a sudden (after getting help with a Compcast "Norton" tech) I noticed a Windows noise - 5 distinct beeps and traced them to DEVICE FAILED TO CONNECT sound. I then went to hardware devices and sure enough, it shows the yellow triangle with the exclamation point in it. It says "5" and beeps 5 times, meaning SOMETHING isn't seeing that all my DRIVES are BOTH CONNECTED and WORKING FLAWLESS.
The MAIN ISSUE is the 5 beeps, spaced oddly over a minutes time when I boot up, but EVERYTHING seems to work perfectly, from SD, DVD, Blu-Ray, Terra Backup and of course the PC - WTH????
I did not have this issue until WHILE in text chat (and Comcast had control of my PC to fix the Norton issue) and I heard the bleeps - thinking though it was something that was happening that the tech was doing. But after I shutdown the PC and started it back up, it started then.
I recovered to an earlier date, repeating what the tech did - see the issue was I had TWO versions of Norton, one preinstalled that didn't remove proper and the Comcast that I installed. I went back as far as I could and reinstalled Norton, it works fine now (as does EVERYTHING ELSE) but still in Hardware devices it says about the PC (TROUBLESHOOTING NEEDED)
anyone run across this??? I'm getting a hold of Gateway, but wanted to tackle it a bit, it is odd, NEVER have I had a device listed in Device Manager that WORKED when it had the yellow exclamation mark next to it - and ALL DEVICES (when the drop down tab is clicked) are drives and everyone is marked as troubled but all work fine. I'm stumped on this - happy everything is working as it should, but the five beeps will drive me nuts, just knowing something sees errors is bad enough, but to hear it LAUGHING AT ME :roll: stinks.
Anyone had this happen???
