Re: sonar ping every 3 seconds

P.Sigmond,

Please provide your computer model and the Operating System installed. Also, when does the ping occur? Did you recently add any software to the computer?

Re: sonar ping every 3 seconds

Hi Jesse,

Thank you for your quick respons!

It appears right after pressing the powerbutton, it even doesn't show the Dell logo, every 3 second therés this sonar like ping, the sound is different from the cmos error beeps, i confirmed this for myself by removing the ram modules and booting. The system has windows 10 now and no changes were made in the last 3 months. Sometimes it boots normal. In the past the HDD was swapped for an Samsung SSD 750 EVO, when i tested this drive (in the laptop as in another workstation) it turned out te be in good condition. i swapped memory to be sure, It also has it while connected to the adapter as when working on the battery.
