Why do i hear a noise when i move my cursor or open menus in KDE? (not from speakers)


whenI move the cursor over things or open menu's I hear a little sound inside my computer... ALMOST like its writing to disc,but the hard drive light indicates otherwise.

What is this sound from?

It's probably coming from the tiny speaker on the motherboard.

Its the goblin inside your computer messing with you. Try offering it some cheese and beer.

I'm guessing you don't have much ram and it is reading from the hard disk, possibly from swap.
