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
Anyone had this happen???
