    Random Sounds No Notification

    I just started using Windows 8 and I am getting a steady litany of system sounds that are indicating something, but without any popup, I have no idea what they are trying to say. I get a simple beep or multiple beeps every 4 to 5 minutes or so throughout the day. It is driving me nuts. Is there any way to figure out what 8 is trying to tell me?

    It is kind of similar to removing or inserting a USB device in 7, but not exactly. So I detached all USB devices and I am still getting the sounds. Is there some type of "Windows 8 Sound to Human" translation table somewhere so that people can figure out what the &!$% MS is trying to tell us?

    Check "Event Viewer" it should mark all the events. Could also be a virtual device that is coming on and off.
