I DON'T THINK IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE MAKING THOSE NOISES
@esm i looked into it a bit, could *possibly* be a BIOS beep code. i found some other people having the same experience and the fixes, and found this https://www.ionos.com/digitalguide/server/know-how/bios-beep-codes/
@esm yeah, i was thinking that. i tried to identify it in the second video due to the fact i could see the "dell" logo and that the site says
Dell beep codes are all the same length. You need to listen for how often a beep is repeated after a short pause. This is indicated by the figures and dashes in the following table. For example, “1 – 2” means “Beep – Beep Beep”.
but couldnt identify it. mightve just been the video being cut short, but i dunno
@esm from what i'm reading, the most common cause for a dell laptop to emit a siren-like sound seems to be the computer worrying about the CPU's temperature. if this is the case, the cooling for the CPU might be either having a voltage issue, or not getting sufficient power to spin enough to cool the CPU
@rebaia ah, that makes since, especially since i had it hooked up to a surge protector hub
thanks for the help
