    Angry Long Beep After Startup, please help

    Hello, this is my first post here. This forum is nice!

    Anyway, i have a Motherboard Asus P5KC with integrated audio (Realtek) - Vista Home Premium. So last night i connected my bass to the mic input but i believe the signal was too strong because the sound was clipping bad. So when i played a little harder, suddenly the pc started to make a continuous beep sound. Anyway, i figured that out, for some reason the PC Beep option was all the way up! (Right Click on the Realtek icon on the taskbar -> Sound -> Speakers -> Properties -> Levels -> PC Beep). So i turned PC beep to 0 and then hit the mute icon next to the bar as well. So that took care of the constant beeping. However, i get a loud continuous beep (same pitch) that lasts around 6 seconds everytime i start my pc. The beep occurs at the end of the hourglass screen, just before it plays the Windows Startup sound. It is really annoying and loud. I have tried everything. Uninstall the realtek drivers from device manager and programs. Then reinstall them. Also i have tried disabling the audio device from the bios then uninstalling drivers, then re-enabling it and reinstalling drivers but nothing. I have also tried to turn off the beep from regedit (i saw it in another thread) and i have also tried to stop the beep from the device manager -> show hidden devices -> non Plug n play devices -> Beep -> Startup = disabled. But nothing worked. And it is driving me crazy! Could it be that my sound circuit now has a problem or is it something fixable? Please i need your help.

    You just might have an issue with your motherboard.

    Oh, i forgot to mention, everything works fine though, i mean all sounds are played the way they were meant to. Only that beep is wrong. Everything else works fine.

    I saw this before but i haven't understood one thing. When do these beeps occur? When the pc starts (in the first 2 seconds when you turn it on) or after the hourglass/before startup.wav? If it is the 1st case, my pc makes a short beep which means everything is fine. But that beep pitch is different to the one i am referring. Thanks

    Try removing the battery from the motherboard for a few minutes, resetting
    it.

    You might have to reset your clock.

    I would write down your CMOS settings in case they are not all the default,

    photographic memory, would you please hit the quote button before
