    Hi, the event you are seeing is a NAV service terminating and is normal activity not a error.

    Any errors in the system section of event viewer?

    I have cut and pasted the two events you are talking about....Can you tell me why the same program is loading the same thing twice??????

    There is no errors as such, but that is the noise im getting.......

    You'll see they r the same except for the " event ID:" is different ...One says "1" and the other says"2"......indicating to me it is doing something twice...There-fore it beeps at me....

    Just annoying :mad:

    Any input would be good on how to stop it !!!!!!

    Ok now thats not an error .... if it was it would have a red circle as the icon ....

    when did this start?

    have you installed something new?

    Made any changes to some settings ( tweaks ) ...

    Also look in the event viewer ( system ) and see ..... if you find any red circles .... and a service can load on start up and shut down seconds later ... so the fact that your booting does not mean something does not load only for a short time .. but besides all that think back what did you change before this started ... cant remember ? ok so then how about trying a system restore to a few days back will it stop? .... if it does not then come back to where you are now .... I am sure you will find it ...

    The service does not run all the time, it starts and stops as needed by NAV so you will see run and term events for it.

    Its not an error and is not causing the sound but you can always remove NAV and NIS is you want to check what im saying.

    As said above check the system section for errors thats where the clues are going to be :)

    I dont see where this is nav or nis ...... we dont see any error's yet ... and the event he showed .. is not an error ... so back to looking in the event viewer ( system ) and see if we can find the error ... and if you look in the event viewer and one is 1 and the other is 2 . in the description chances are that ie 1 = start , 2= stop or vice verca ......

    The events are ccpasswd events created by a supporting service for nav when it starts and stops. 1 and 2 do releate to start and stop. This is normal activity so is not an issue!

    I know we dont see any errors and im not saying we are :confused:

    I have said the same as you kermit above, i know we need to look for errors in the system section.

    You are right ....one is "application started" and the other is"Application Terminated"....

    The "ccPwdSvc" is a Symentac shared Application........and I have NAV 2003 Pro and NIS 2003 installed on my comp.......

    I never said I had an error , but I did say that the beep sounds like an error beep ........

    I went into system like you said and found the following errors...but they don't correspond to the beep.....the pic may help..there are four together.....see wat you make of it????

    I have not installed anything except for dvd software and dvd backup software & IE 6 in the last week wen the beep.....started.........but the beep was there before I installed all of the above...WEIRD :(

    Hope all this info helps

    Alloy25, the ACPI errors are not of concern and will not be the issue so that rules one thing out. ACPI errors would not generate any visual or audible alert as they are recorded before logon.
    They only releate to a incompatablitiy between windows and your motherboard.

    Is the beep generated from the internal pc speaker or the speakers using a windows sound e.g the critical error sound?

    Also a list of starting apps may help at this stage. You can use the app below to generate a log which u can paste into the forum.

    I hope I was not coming off wrong I was not trying to argue a point ...:D its just that if we focus on nav and nis we might be beeping up the wrong tree <<lol punny huh?

    The beep you hear it is from your desktop speakers? or the system speaker?

    and do you see ( i know its not easy ) but what is loading on the taskbar when beep sounds?

    I cant see anything in that last pic .. that error is not what we are looking for ( at least not in my opinion )

    do you have a program that can give you a list of all the applications that start up with your machine ?

    here is a good one its free for 30 days it will allow you to see all the programs that load on start and you can troubleshoot by unchecking one at a time .. might just find the culprit this way .. its called system mechanic http://www.iolo.com
