Problem Resuming from Standby...Any Ideas?

Every time my PC (XP) resumes from standby, it makes loud beeping noises, through the speakers and freezes up every few seconds. It unfreezes, beeps, and freezes again...repeats...

As far as I can tell this continues indefinitely (ive lasted about 2 mins before getting incredibly annoyed, shutting down and starting up normally.

I have standby set to S3 suspend mode in BIOS (full power shutdown)

Anybody got any ideas what this could be?

what sort of USB devices you got plugged in if any, these have always caused problems for me in the past.

Won`t be this, but it sure reminds me of whilst programming u don`t define where the end of a sound thingy is and the coded player would wonder off through all u`r memory playing everything it came across till it`d paged everything

On a side note, try turning off all event sounds just to see if the noise goes away.

Does Event Viewer show any error/failure events at the times this has happened? Does it create a minidump file c:\windows\minidump cos you can 'debug' them with windbg and it can sometimes indicate where the problem is.

What sequence of beeps is it giving you? Typically the beeps are a coded message from the mobo to tell you what the problem is.

There might be a hint in this thread:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/11...up-resume-dell

Granted, it's a dell laptop but it's possible the root cause of the problem is the same and the steps to diagnose are probably similar.

Actually.. If I had to guess I would suspect the cpu fan doesn't get up to speed fast enough and the mobo/bios notices and throttles/pauses the CPU to prevent overheating.

yeah i did read that thread when i was googling the problem...

nothing significant in event viewer...

i would have thought it was a BIOS beep, but it seems strange as it comes from the speakers, not from the mobo beeper thing.

Interesting... On my old mobo it could use the onboard sound card to report boot problems, is this an onboard sound card, or seperate PCI one?

Does the pattern match anything in your motherboard manual, that alone might give us a hint.
