Sounds to be like a hardware or case alarm.  There's probably a reset button
on the case, but you might have to hard reset to clear it up.  Usually, the
pcspkr module is not very loud.


heh, i rebooted. i couldn't get any work done with that noise.

so.... for next time, is there any software to reset hardware alarms? i know there's ipmi stuff, but i don't have an ipmi card for this computer. when i googled, i found a man page for 'hwreset' but i didn't find anything with 'apt-cache search' (on either the kubuntu install or a debian box).
