constant notification beeps after reinstalling xp

  hermione_uk2002 20:33 23 Oct 07

I recently re-installed XP home and all the drivers for my acer aspire 5600 however since doing this my laptop has the "notification beep" sounding constantly and is very sluggish. This did not happen the last time I reinstalled from the recovery disk and all the drivers. I have turned off the notification sounds so I can't hear the beeping but the laptop's performance is very slow still. ANy suggestions as to what would cause the beeping?

That's unlikely to be the problem. Does it do the same in safe mode? Hit F8 repeatedly at startup, before you see the XP logo and choose from the menu.
