Bizzare Beeps

[ #8215 ]
Mon Oct 7 13:53:28 2002 GMT

Out of impatience (and maybe frustration), I podmaster, held down the keys DJK simultaneously on my Microsoft Natural Keyboard whilst running Win2000 and was confronted with a BEEP every half a second or so (probably less) and lasting about as much.

Most other key combinations didn't do any beeping.

Through further testing with the help of fellow monks (and [katgirl] -- DellPC), I have come to find that I am not alone.

[PixelRat] chimed in with "my computer actually reboots when i press ctrl, alt + delete (and it beeps!)"

[dada] asked if it was the same beep as produced by print chr(7) -- bell

It was not. The bell is high pitch and long, while this one is low pitch and short.

Here is a list of keys which have beeped for me ;)
