    Or that it's beeping to show that friends are coming in and out.

    The best way to check it?

    Log in as another user (make one if need be) and see if the beeping happens there.

    Otherwise, reduce the apps you're using to bare bones, and then add one at a time and test until the beep appears.

    What kind of beep? Not sure but on some PC motherboards a simple beep pattern could mean trouble.
