    Default T400 - Beeping sound??

    Does anyone else get a beeping sound coming from their T400? I hear THREE consecutive beeps (very faint) every 5 seconds or so. My room is completely silent though and I can hear everything, including the hard drive. Just wondering if anyone knows what this sound is?

    Hello rxblitzrx,

    I think there is a different answer to your question.

    Where does it come from? Is it where the F1 button is seated.

    Then your TP will suffer from so called cpu whine, most it comes up, when your
    TP is running on battery.

    You can disable it by go into Bios and disable speedstepping of your cpu.

    kind regards

    wow, even during a fresh windows install it's still beeping.... actually when you get closer it sounds like a squeeky wheel... like something is rotating inside.

    Beep is located on the right side, near the optical drive. I'd say near the corner of the optical drive and the LCD.

    Strange, it doesn´t seem either a cpu whine nor a coil problem or your hdd.

    What is located there, your usb connections?
    Are you using an external mouse?
