    Hi there
    Recently i've been getting this problem with windows vista home editio
    where constantly on and off im getting the two beeps as though a US
    device has been plugged in and within one second you hear another tw
    beeps indicating that it has been removed.
    I'm not putting anything in or out i'm guessing this is some sort o
    hardware error. I've had the laptop for about 6 months now.
    I'm puzzled.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Cheers :

    Try the simple stuff first. Plug the flash drive into another computer.

    there isn't a flash drive, the whole thing is happening within my lapto
    which has nothing plugged in the USB ports at all.

  4. It seems I am having the exact same situation occuring with my PC.

    I have a Dell 1525 and contacted Dell support. After an hour and
    half on the phone with my friends in India, I was told that the onl
    recommendation they had was for me to re-install Windows.

    I refuse to believe that to be the only solution.

    Hope someone can come up with a real solution

    Hey there, i have in fact solved it, but am disappointed.
    In the front of the laptop on the right side there is a port that says
    SD/MMC
    Inside that is the flash card
    If you remove this you should be fixed !
    I'm pretty disappointed though, this must be a production fault or
    something..
    Seems like dell were pretty sloppy with the hardware
    Hope this helps :)

  6. Hello Alikane

    Did exactly as you suggested. Removed the sdcard and the issue seem
    to have been resolved. Perhaps our friends at Dell should be instructe
    to come to this site to get the correct solutions rather then jumping t
    the wrong conclussions.
    Thank you for your help.

    Pete
