Control Panel/Sounds offers: a. Default b. Default Modified c. No sound. To change from those there is a drop down with lots of choices i.e. startup, error, etc. I just select No sounds, and now there are none, and no clicking sound either. Speakers are on and the only sounds I can get now are music or audio, but nothing from Windows related actions.
From this I would have to guess that the clicking is Windows related. Beats me? Thanks for the input.
My setting was Default Modified when I checked it earlier. I found what No Sound meant, so now changed it to just plain Default to see what happens.
