    Hi @lloyde12000 , welcome to tenforums!

    Most likely Explorer action sounds, you could visit C:/Windows/Media and give em a listen and see what they are...

    Three notes in quick succession usually indicate a usb device being detected or removed. The files are 'Windows Hardware Insert.wav' and Windows Hardware Remove.wav' in C:\Windows\Media. If this is happening often it could indicate worn contacts or a poor connection for this the usb device.

    Play each of the set sounds in turn until you hear the one you recognise. Unlike the other posts, I suggest using the UI to do this -
    - Right-click on Start button, Control panel, Sound, Sounds tab.
    - Select each one in turn and press Test.
