Hi Guys,

My MacPro has started making a Bubble type sound three note sequence every so often, I have no idea what it is.

It is not the alert sound and I have played all of them to make sure.

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers

Andy

can you print a screenshot of your Activity Monitor? or the output from a ps in Terminal. Something that gives us a clue what's running on it.

Go to your Universal Access Preference Pane in System Preferences and see if Voice Over is turned on. If it is, turn it off.

One of the Voice Over voices is called Bubbles - that may be what you're hearing.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the replies, I am away from the Mac at the moment in Vista land when I get back I will have another look.
