(Redirected) Computer beeps during use. Maybe high disk or the use of the CPU usage?

New here and new to Dell computers. 1st stop, I have a Dell XPS 13 "i7 6560u 16 GB and SSD 512. When using the computer, I get a series of 2 beeps. It seems to be related to the high use of the disc or the CPU usage. I guess my question is possible to put these notifications for a longer delay or at least decrease the volume of the beeps. I am aware that when I use one of my CSD programs to open a browser and looking for an answer to the question about what there will be times where I could get high uses a of these, that's all just annoying and not really want to turn them off entirely (option I would) I would delay having more time this will happen to until I get through this ,

I thank you,

  • Satellite A45 - the CPU usage is high and slow applications

    Hi all

    I'm trying to debug a hardware problem on my Toshiba Satellite A45. I am running Ubuntu 10.04, but I don't think that it's operating system or related software.

    THE PROBLEM: The CPU usage is high and applications slowly to a crawl after using an intensive application of memory for a few minutes, i.e. to watch a video or a game. Basically, anything that could use the screen much. If instead, I work only from a prompt, even when the application could do a lot of work, I do not encounter this problem. After stopping all applications, the CPU usage is always higher than normal (90% idle, should normally be slowed down to about 99%).

    Xorg now typically showing about 6% (normally use< 2%).="" if="" i="" at="" any="" time="" after="" this="" try="" to="" work="" in="" any="" application,="" usage="" is="" still="" bogged="" down.="" only="" a="" reset="" gets="" me="" back="" to="">

    Note: My system has always worked very well and I did not made the installation of the software or changes when it started to happen.
    However, the laptop is a 800 miles round trip at the rear of the car in a padded bag.

    DEBUG: This doesn't seem to be the RAM that I replaced the RAM and reinstall the RAM, and the problem persists. This doesn't seem to be the hard drive that I can try to run it from a Live CD (without use of HARD drive) and yet everything slows to a crawl.

    HELP: I don't know how to debug from here.
    I don't have extra pieces of hardware to make swaps.

    Any ideas more how to debug this?

    Thank you


    > I am running Ubuntu 10.04, but I don't think that it's operating system or related software.
    It s interesting why you think that this may be software related issue

    I think that it is a typical software problem because the RAM and the HARD drive has been verified you have reported this in the message

    So what to say maybe some virus or malware likely to obstruct the CPU and the memory usage
    Or there is some process in the background that are not properly

    I recommend you to reinstall the Windows operating system or another distribution of Linux that runs NO Live CD, but which is installed on the HARD drive
    I m sure that s kind of the process that is disabled and crashes somewhere in the background

  • The CPU usage goes up to 50-60% right when I start the computer.

    Original title: high CPU usage

    I have a pc with windows 7 64-bit, 4 GB ram, AMD Phenom II x 2 511 processor and a Nvidia Geforce Gtx 260. The CPU usage goes up to 50-60% right when I start the computer. I ran the Task Manager and there is no program using the cpu. It has nothing to do with anny viruses because I scanned the computer with two different programs. We do not have Steam and the EA download manager. What could be the problem?

    "Idle" means "doing nothing."  Windows runs the "System Idle" process when the processor has no useful to perform tasks.

    Look at the status bar at the bottom of the Task Manager and you will see that the CPU usage does NOT include the percentage for the System Idle process.

    What are the processes other than Idle System added up to 50-60%?

    I suggest that you run an online scan using antivirus ESET online--> http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

    and then download, install, update and run the free MalwareBytes AntiMalware--> https://www.malwarebytes.org/ version

    I expect that the MalwareBytes Installer is clean enough, but you should pay attention when installing any software to make sure that you accept all of the pre-selected options to install other bundled applications.

    • For example, help Hp or programs of this type.

    To determine what is using the CPU more...

    CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to open the Task Manager

    Click on the header of the CPU until the processes that are using most of the CPU are grouped in the upper part.

    As a general rule, the upper entrance should be System Idle around 96-97%.

    any help, suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated...

    Kind regards



    If you plan to build your app for Windows, you can use .NET classes. (System.PerformanceCounter), there is a simple example with LabVIEW:

    C:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments\LabVIEW 2010\examples\comm\dotnet\SimpleTaskMonitor.llb

    Also, you have several screws that you can use to verify information about the processor.

    The Task Manager is now just 'CPU' because I must have hit something wrong.  I was hoping just to click on the tab use the CPU in the Task Manager, now somehow when I hit CTRL, remove alt. it shows only the CPU usage graph.

  • A computer repair shop can install windows on someones computer off a 'set of generic disks' if the computer has the right to this type of windows via a PIN single/code/serialnumber?

    A few years back, I took a computer to a repair shop and had not the discs, the repair guy said that they could legally restore the computer and load it on a wide a copy of a random/generic windows (the same computer had the right of)

    is it legitimate?

    Seems like it would be, I mean if the computer has the right to this title, but I don't know if you're telling me.

    Thank you

    If the Windows license is an OEM license (ie. the computer was purchased from a company like Dell, HP, etc. with pre-installed Windows), then the license is bound to the machine.  Each manufacturer has a way to check their OEM license is valid.  One method is for the manufacturer to place a code in the BIOS of the motherboard that validates the copy of XP, when installed with a floppy disk to install from the same manufacturer.  So it should be perfectly legitimate to restore license OEM to the originating from a floppy to install OEM computer.


  • Excessively the CPU usage high on my Equium M70


    Recently in the last month my summer CPU usage hit 100% when I m not running any software tax (only internet explore and windows media player).

    It is slowing down the load time and the area near the fan is hot enough.

    I have a Satellite M70-337, with a 1.7 centrino processor and now 2 GB of RAM (formerly 512 megabytes). I upgraded the ram in December and had no problems like that, now it just started happening recently, I have installed everything that would, there is no unnecessary programs running and it was after I restored my computer to factory with the startup disk settings (a month later), he seems to have come from nowhere. On the list of the Task Manager it shows my web browser and Media Player by using most of the CPU, but I could have sworn that they use so far before.

    I don't know if the RAM would have been a factor, but it was the correct RAM for it and windows recognized to 2 GB.

    Why would it suddenly happened any ideas guys?


    I have the same model of laptop and at the moment I have no such problems. To be honest, I did new installation OS 3 months ago and after installing Microsoft Update, I noticed this laptop does not work as before. Just for example: if I use IE7 extensively with several different tabs in the Task Manager I can see this need for IE more than 300,000 k of memory and crashes somehow. After the closure of the IE and ending THE process sin Task Manager I can work normally again.

    I don't really know how your operating system is configured, but in the Task Manager, you should see what running process is responsible for the high CPU usage. Maybe some antivir application? Sorry, but it is really not easy to sayt why this happens. Play around with the current process.

  • When Windows starts it is always a dialogue box that flashes on the screen and the CPU usage high (above 50%), after I connect sometimes for several minutes.

    Original title: at the start of Windows there is always a dialogue box that flashes on the screen, but I've known idea what it is.

    How can I determine which program is using this dialog box? I also don't expect high utilization of the processor (over 50%) after that I connect sometimes for several minutes. I see not all applications running in the Task Manager. The amount of CPU utilization in the services tab doesn't match what I see compared to what the gadget is read in my sidebar. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Soan,

    1. What is exactly mentioned in the dialog box?

    2. when the problem started?

    3. did you of recent changes on the system?

    Method 1:

    Step 1:

    You can check if the problem occurs in safe mode.

    Start your computer in safe mode

    Step 2:

    If you are not faced with the question in safe mode, you can perform a clean boot and check.

    A clean boot to check if startup item or services to third-party application is causing this issue.

    You can read the following article to put the computer in a clean boot:

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    After the troubleshooting steps, please refer to clean the boot link to put the computer to normal startup mode.

    Method 2:

    You can read the following article and perform a full scan of security on your computer.

  • Satellite A200 crashing when moved or when the CPU usage is too high

    Well so recently my Toshiba Satellite A200 started crashing everytime I have to pick up the laptop or run any processes taking the CPU up to 100% usage.

    This means essentially no rendering 3D games and no Photoshop or current iTunes running at the same time, etc. Here are the best even if it happens only when the laptop is plugged and not when only battery power. I tried to use another AC adapter, and I cleaned the hard drive for a new installation of Windows 7 that never solved the problem. I even went so far as to update the BIOS.

    I am not quite determined that he is just a hardware problem, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions about which party can act up on me. As I said still works like a dream when running on battery power.

    > Here is the kicker if this happens only when the laptop is plugged and not when only battery power.

    The energy saving switch to another profile, using the AC adapter.
    Maybe you can try to change the speed of treatment at a lower level and could increase the cooling method parameters in the energy saving profile when the AC adapter is in use.

    Otherwise, it could be a hardware problem and in this case, you will need a help of ASP.
