    PowerBook G4 ...beeps!!
    3+yo PowerBook G4, 1.5GHz PowerPC G4
    I am using this as a backup while MBPro is 'in the shop".... in the last week, with no apparent reason/cause, there is a random and loud BEEP sound. I never experienced the sound before....and wonder what it is. Everything about the unit works fine.
    Ideas? thanks.

    no. battery is 99%....thanks for suggstion.
    I have since read that there are various BEEPs for RAM memory issues, but they also don't apply. since my computer is being shipped to Depot, second time in 8 days, I have this one as a backup....just would like it not to crash on me.

    My powerbook G4 has done it periodically over the last year. I've never found a solution. All I know is that it's a hardware level "beep," happening even when the system is muted.

    unlike the macrumors posting, my beep happens when I'm on battery with nothing attached.

    It was doing it a lot shortly before my first hard drive failed. Still does it periodically with a new hard drive (different brand).

    My beeps have no sequence to them.
