    Posted this on MS XP help NG but responses do
    not posit the problem. Can some of you help.

    I don't really know how to explaine it but out of the
    blue my unit will start to ring as if a telephone
    except the pause between rings is not as long a
    normal land line phone. It starts at any time on
    any application, perhaps 2/3 times a week.I
    have ran the applicable AV , trojan ect. programs
    without success.

    I do not have net meeting or live messenger installed.
    This problem arose last week and I cannot fathom what
    I have done to cause it. Regardkess of my sound
    volumn setting this phone ringing comes on full blast,
    lasts about 15 or twenty second, then shuts off. The
    sound does not resemble a typical phone ring, the
    space between rings is much shorter, the end of each
    ring is not crisp but trails of in a semi-roar. I have not
    DL'd anything that can be traced to this problem.

    Your "unit"?

    Check your sounds in Control Panel, and see what event is assigned to
    that sound.

    Check your task list for any unknown processes.

    The "unit" ... is it the external speakers or the case itself (builtin
    speaker)?
    It may as well be your mainboard alarm, due to overtemperature or fan
    warning ...

    No do NOT post "Hijackthis" logs on HERE.
    There are specialist newsgroups for that.

    Give me a break.

    I suppose you would rather guess at what the problem could be?
    Oh, thats right, you didn't offer any help whatsoever.......Hmmmm

    I didn't realize that you set the rules for this newsgroup.

    Here's an idea......if you aren't going to try to
    help...............DON'T REPLY!
