What Instant Messaging program are you using?

When I'm using AIM, some "buddies" of mine have sign out sounds so I hear a clip of music every so often.

The same thing is happening to me. I'd have my laptop on and it's just sitting there at the desktop (nothing running) while I'm doing something else and suddenly I'd get this 2-3 second sound that sounds like running water from a game or something, and just today I started hearing what sounds like sound clips from a song. It doesn't do this when I'm playing a game though.

Computer Randomly Plays Classical Music

During normal operation or in Safe mode, your computer may play "Fur Elise" or "It's a Small, Small World" seemingly at random. This is an indication sent to the PC speaker from the computer's BIOS that the CPU fan is failing or has failed, or that the power supply voltages have drifted out of tolerance. This is a design feature of a detection circuit and system BIOSes developed by Award/Unicore from 1997 on.

Although these symptoms may appear to be virus-like, they are the result of an electronic hardware monitoring component of the motherboard and BIOS. You may want to have your computer checked or serviced.

That has happenned to me as well. I have heard some wierd country song, as well as some sort of advertisement. You might want to visit the Hijack This! forum and post a log there, to see if anything suspicious is found.
