Jose, the sounds weren't there before, I hooked up the scanner, printer, and
web-cam. Oh, I didn't hook-up the network adapter. Maybe tht has something to
do with it? No, probably not.
Anyways, I've identified the sounds under sounds & audio devices tab in
control panel. it's the connect, disconnect sounds. So everytime I come out
of stand-by I hear tht noise. Something is amiss. I guess I'll un-hook and
re-hook them up again and see if tht does it.
