    Everytime I press the cmd (apple) key in combination with a shortcut command, my computer plays the "funk.aiff" noise.

    System/Library/Sounds/Funk.aiff

    for example, if i highlight text and hit cmd + C to copy it, it gives me the noise, if i go to paste it cmd + V, it gives me the noise again (but the copy/paste does work correctly).

    also, if i try to quit a program using cmd + q, it happens or create a new tab in firefox with cmd + t, or even close a finder window with cmd + w.

    it happens throughout the system, I've restarted and am up to date on 10.6.2

    anyone else had this problem? know how to fix it?

    check your universal access (preferences > universal access)
    you might have done a short cut that turned something on...

    Good idea, no luck though.

    I thought so too, but after a few days it drives you nuts :hyper:

    how often do you need to hear "funk" to know something happened?

    Check your keyboard shortcuts, maybe somehow CMD was assigned to some key combination or something.

    I have a weird boinging noise being played maybe a couple times a day, I have no idea where it is coming from. I'm sure from some program I installed.
