T500: LONG Beep at Boot

One of my T500 machines is sporadically (maybe 40-50% of the time) giving a three second beep when restarting, either from a power-up or a wake up from hibernation. Aside from being annoying, the machine comes up and runs normally.

Any ideas as to what it's trying to tell me? I haven't found anything relevant with a web search.

Not sure about this, but I think if the HDD or optical drive is not properly seated, you'll get that one long beep. Could either be a little loose?
