My father and I just had that same issue on his brand new ET2300. I upgraded the sound drivers from Asus's website to the newest version V126.96.36.19926. That seemed to fix the problem. Once you play with the sound settings in the Maxxaudio (or whatever it's called) software, you can get it to really sound good.
try to check your laptop keyboard maybe their is some small materials that are accidentally inserted on the keyboard, but if the unit was still beeping, you might need to ask an actual technician because maybe their is something wrong inside of your motherboard on your laptop. Better to ask the techie person on your area so that they will going to open it up.
Hi Naomi. I am not sure of your model, but you probably have a build in mic. If so, open your sound properties from your task bar, Click on File - Advanced Properties. You should now see a "Mic" volume control. Mute this control and see if this stops the sound.
If this does not work, locate the manufacturer of your sound card and visit their website to download newer drivers, if available. If this also does not work, you will need to return the product to the retailer to reinstall a clean version of windows. Many times files become easily corrupt in the installation of audio codecs, drivers, etc. Hope this helps.
most likely sounds like your hard drive. Mine did the same thing starting that loud whirring noise and overheating a lot. i took it into geek squad at best buy and it cost 199.99 for the diagnosis of the problem and the repair ( if you want just a diagnosis its 69.99) and then had to buy a hard drive ( i went for the 320 GB for 109.99) and they installed it for free same day in and out. took the whole process about 5 hours on a friday afternoon.
try starting in safe mode and see if it does it still. It could be that you have some background program like Windows update or that new Windows active search function, which spends copious amounts of processor time cataloging your entire computer. Some anti-virus programs will do the same and eat up processor time. I'd try shutting down as many of these background processes to see what (or what combination) is causing the problem.
If this doesn't work, you might have a bad connection with your heatsink, which would cause your computer to stay at or your fan might be going bad, causing it to get really loud.
I'm not going to go into the possibility of it being used on a lap or bed or carpet where the fan intake vent is getting blocked. I know you've eliminated this as a possibility. Right?
