Hi, I am not begging for code here, but rather some concepts / ideas on how to accomplish this. I code in VB.NET, but that isn't really too relevant at this point. I am trying to develop something similar to a radar system. I have that all working and the data coming in just fine. Now I want to add an audible ping to the application that gives information about the data. Sort of like the sonar ping you see on submarine / boat movies. I want the frequency of the ping to indicate the range to the target, and …

Here is what I'm trying to do: * Take input with scanf() * Pass input to function * Beep frequency associated with input I have notes defined, e.g `const in C5 = 523.25;` I want the user to be able to input "C5", and have the computer beep at a frequency of 523.25. When I run my code, I get the same sound no matter what I input, even if it is just random letters. I am fairly new to C, but I think what is happening is that the function is trying to beep at the frequency of the …

Hi all! I'll just list out what I've observed: -On switching on the system, I get no display and no beep. If I press the button again, it shuts off. I can switch it on and off n number of times and the only way to escape this is to press the reset button. Then the computer functions as it normally does. Then I turn it off and I have to go through the process above to make it work again. -The system freezes often and I get some sort of delayed response but again I have to press the …

Hi, Please could you help me with this problem. I have purchased a laptop for my son from (wish i'd bought new) Ebay (my advise, don't collect an item offering shipping it voids your paypal protection, apparently). Originally we were experiencing a problem with the battery not taking the charge and dying within moments of the power supply being removed. Then within a few hours any reboots were causing the laptop to stall on boot, with a series of beeps that meant media failure. We overcame this by rebooting resitting the battery and power wire and all was fine again …

Hello. I'm kinda new to C++ and want to play two beeps through the system speaker (PC) (Using Beep() of course) at the same time for a song I'm working on. I heard about multithreading, but, as i am only slightly experienced in c++, am having trouble understanding it. Could someone please write a small sample to help me understand? Kind regards, Nimaid P.S. I would prefer not to use any external libraries. Thanks!

Hello, I'm still a huge beginner in C++ and while i spent hours trying to find a solution to this problem i came to this forum pretty often and I thought it'd be a good idea if I try to ask about my problem. (If you notice anything that can be done better I'd be more than happy to hear an criticism, advice, or lesson about coding). I just wanted to try a little project on my own outside of my C++ class and I wanted to make a timer for myself (since i always end up losing my sense …

I've been having this problem on my Dell Vostro 400 XP SP2 for around 3 weeks now. The PC boots up fine and then functions well as it has always done for a random period of time. Then it starts slowly freezing eventually giving me no control at all over the PC. The clock freezes at the time that the PC froze, and I have no control. Occasionally, a loud long continuous beep is emitted from the CPU and I have once experienced the BSOD. The annoying thing is that the freeze occurs at random times, regardless of what I'm …
