white noise or background sounds from a media player. The media player I use has a setting for Rain It plays in between tracks. Maybe check your start program and see what you have checked at start up ....Digger
My mom recently got a Dell Inspiron 6000; Windows XP, we've only had it for a few months and no problems so far.
Just the other day, randomly, a water droplet sort of sound has been playing. Sometimes is 1 drop and other times it's 2 to 3. It's usually every maybe, 10-15 minutes or so. It's driving me crazy and I've been researching and researching but no answers.
We don't have Pest Patrol and I don't have any background programs running that I know of that make this noise. The only way to turn it off is to mute the computer which is problematic because silence just isn't my thing. I've also ran a full system scan and it found nothing, I don't believe it's a virus anyway.
Willing to listen to any and all advice.
