I am uncertain if this is something related to win2k pro or my mainboard, but when I hit and hold the shift+a+w keys on my keyboard my mainboard speaker starts beeping. This key combination is used in some games and applications I operate and I can't seem to find out what these keys are binded to or what is causing this. I have already checked bios and it doesnt seem like there is anything there that would cause this. Thanks for any help/advice/suggestions in advanced.

Does anybody have any JuMpEr CaBleS?

shift +a +w has to be the most dum combination of keys, CTRL +a +w is the same as alt/f4, and since ctrl is right below shift, it seems a bit stupid to me.
