    It's a high pitched sound for like a split second.

    Is my laptop about to die on me lol? It's Windows 8.1.

    Ok this may be the stupidest, easiest answer - but are you sure the power supply isn't unplugged? Our son's laptop does that when it's about to die and needs plugged in.

    Any chance you have an HP Envy laptop? Mine does the same thing and have had it replaced already.

    Never too long in one place.
    Count the time in seconds between the beeps. Is it the same every time? Check a repair manual for that model and see what "beep every X seconds" means.

    Could also be overheating reasons. Does it run very hot? Install a motherboard monitor or similar and check the temperatures.

    Let me know for the future. Was it caused by the speakers?

    To stop the problem from occurring again, turn the laptop and unscrew the screws and find the buzzer that is making noise. It'll look like a shirt button and will be in black color on most of the models. Pull it out of the board with a nose plier carefully to avoid damaging the motherboard. Don't forget to tighten the screws back else the hard disk drive will fall out. Hope I helped.

    The last 2 posts that he made is on a month old thread bumping it to frontpage. You can increase your post account by participating in the active threads but why pull a thread that has been answered and buried deep inside? I think it's better to let him know about the BHW rules rather seeing a thread from him later on asking why he got an infraction.

    You have too much time on your hands maybe? A month is nothing, there are much older threads.
