Can anyone help or advise me, please?
My local computer technician has recently upgraded me from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Thanks in advance for any ideas. Jenny

I suspect it's a notification sound. Windows XP had it, and then Windows 7 and 8 didn't have it, and now Windows 10 has it again. It can be quite annoying because Windows makes that sound for a lot of things that it didn't in Windows 7 and 8. You may be able to change your sound theme, or you may be able to simply replace the annoying sound's file with a less annoying sound.

Same here - and it's none of the standard Windows sounds Jan 11

I've tested the whole blessed lot of them and none are the same as the 'bloop' (love it!) I sometimes also hear - it's recent for me too, though I've been on Windows 10 for three years now. I haven't as yet managed to spot a sure pattern, though it seems sometimes (but not always) to do it when I connect to a website.
Shall we keep each other posted if we manage to work out what it's about?

Thanks, Victoria Jan 11

Yes, by all means let's stay in touch about this situation.
I passed Samuel's suggestion on to my computer technician who replied that it was a good idea but not correct in this case. He says it's "a connect-disconnect usb-related problem" and plans to re-install my mouse and re-configure my printer next Monday in ways obscure to me and see whether that stops the annoying tinkle-bloop noise!

Anti-virus? Jan 11

If it seems to appear when connecting to a website, could it be anti-virus software detecting a possibly suspicious site?

That was my first thought... Jan 11

... but it seems unlikely, because it happens with websites that are very mainstream indeed and with no accompanying pop-up notification (I use Avira).

Oh, I know what you mean.

Well, according to Google, you may still be able to silence the computer by simply setting that notification sound to mute, although that would not solve the main problem. I'm not sure what impact it would have on your computer if it keeps connecting and disconnecting in silence.

"a connect-disconnect" problem?! Jan 13

Um, does your computer technician sound alarmed about this? I unfortunately don't have one to hand...

No, not alarmed Jan 13

No, my computer technician does not seem alarmed at the noise or the alleged connect-disconnect but rather seems annoyed that I expect him to come up with a solution (I paid him quite a large sum for a complete upgrade before I discovered that it was emitting the annoying noise and I wasn't expecting the upgraded system to be faulty).

USB 3.0 vs previous USB? Jan 13

The "usb connect-disconnect" mention reminded me of something: when browsing the BIOS menu of my new computer last weekend (Win10 is not installed yet), the mouse would suddenly freeze. I unplugged the mouse from a USB 3.0 socket (blue) and plugged it back to a black USB socket and it worked. The inside of my mouse socket is white.
