Default I am going to get Fired

When I smash this very expensive computer and throw it out the window!!!

I am a government worker and our landfill/transfer stations are open today....

But we are the only ones working! No bosses, no IT!!!

And the computer here has had a failure of some kind, it's still working and I need it to weigh and process my customers (the few we have as everyone thinks we are closed!) but it's sounding a very loud warning alarm, with no break in between!!! It's so annoying and so loud, i am building one hell of a headache and getting almost anxiety type (among with cranky type!) symptoms because it's driving me INSANE!!!

That's All.... LOL

Well, you're close to where you can dump it at least

Do you have an emergency backup power strip that the computer is connected to? I would get that warning at work when we had a power outtage, power surge or even a flicker of an outtage. There was a button you could press to reset the power strip.

Or REBOOT/RESTART........that can fix a whole plethora of issues, it's the first thing I try no matter what the issue!

I can't handle non stop alarming.........I have smashed a smoke detector down from the ceiling over that garbage! LOL I even threatened to throw my son in the river for crying all night as a baby! ROFL, I didn't, but it was looking real good at the time!

Tried that too..... Earned about two minutes of blessed silence then it started blaring again!! Thank god it's quiet I am hiding in my car and watching for customers! I thought about only booting it when a customer showed but unlike a typical home computer this puppy runs through about ten minutes of checks and balances before it boots, then you still have to log in etc.. Would take too long as many customers would be back out before I had it running!

My next suggestion would be to dial one of the numbers that goes to an answering system and let it record the noise, with a quick message of "ALL. DAY. LONG."
