What is the cause of the beating?

When your computer encounters problem upon restarting or booting, it will produce sound(s).

The sounds or beeps correspond to a code.  

This beep code informs the user about the current status of your computer hardware.

For example, when you turn on your pc and you hear three short beeps, meaning there is RAM or memory failure.

How the system does recognized thrashing?

Once it recognize thrashing, what are the rules to terminate this issue? 

The system recognized thrashing through assessing the central processing unit. It can be eliminated by decreasing the use of computer resources.

What is Ntbootdd.sys files use for?

The Ntbootdd.sys  is used on systems that require booting from a Small Computer System Interface disk.

Thrashing is a kind of computer activity that makes little or no progress. It refers to the extreme slowness in performing a specific activity or task. It is usually caused by lack of resources like when the memory is exhausted.

When this thing happens, it usually develops a pattern where a process or a program creates a request to the operating system then the operating system will try to find resources by getting them from other process which in turn creates new requests that cannot be satisfied. A system that encounters thrashing can be identified by either having a very slow system or one that has become frozen.

The NTBOOTDD.SYS file is a device driver file used to boot from a SCSI drive. This file is used to identify and load the SCSI interface on systems with SCSI boot device. On other systems that don’t have SCSI boot device, this file is not installed because it is not required.
