Windows 8 beeps – Check your USB devices

Yesterday I installed a new Windows 8 PC in my home-office. Since plugging my USB devices this morning I noticed  a beep coming from the built-in speaker;

Needless to say the beep became very annoying quickly “pip-pip-pip”

After some researching I identified the culprit:

I connected two USB printers into my USB hub. When I removed one of the printers from the hub and connected it directly into a dedicated USB port on the back of the computer, the beep disappeared and I was able to print on both printers

So, watch your USB devices (printers, hard drives, cameras, mice, etc) on a new Windows 8 computer. It could be the cause of the 3 sequential beeps on your PC speakers
