I was using my friend’s Acer Aspire 5540 notebook (mine went to service center). One strange thing that happened was his notebook making a long one second beep like every ten minutes.
I am pretty sure the beep was coming from pc speaker because the main volume has been set to lowest setting.
At first I thought it was from the battery full indicator, but after using ac adaptor directly, same beep still coming out randomly.
CPU usage is not high and so as the temperature , so ruled out overheat problem.
Searching in the Net for similar problem I found the following:

Hey guys, my laptop is beeping randomly… it beeps once maybe every hour or two, but everything still works and the only thing I do is surf the net and word process. I’m sure it’s not a virus or anything, so just wondering if anyone has any idea what I should do?
It’s just 1 beep for like 1 second, and everything still works after it beeps, and it seems to only do it when I’m running Windows :confused:

Just off the top of my head, it could be a battery issue which wouldn’t seem to be it because you’d know if it was the battery pretty fast. It could be Windows finding an internet connection or something similar to it.

i have the same problem with my acer 5672… sometimes randomly does bip bip..
and it is not battery (it’s on AC) or windows finding anything, because i’m just running outlook and a few apps for work
Anyone facing this strange beep problem on your Acer notebook?
One thing: Acer notebook keyboards flex! The keys went down too much when I typed, nothing to complain… begger can’t be chooser..
