hi
minutes ago, my computer blacked out and then started to make beeping sounds until i pressed the power button off
then when i turned it on again, it made 3 beeps and then booted

its been making these beeping sounds randomly for months now. a little while ago its started making another strange sound during the booting.
what could be the problem?

i have windows xp home edition
version 5.1.2600 service pack 3 build 2600

Thermal warning Four alternating beeps:

High tone, low tone, high tone, low tone (or very similar) - ""de leeee de leeee""

Do these Beep codes sound anything like the ones you are trying to describe ??

This is from the reading listed on your Speccy shot - Along with a bit of searching about your Make / Model / System -
Manufacturer: Intel CorporationModel: D945GTP (J3E1): System Temperature: 70 C

If so the Motherboard > System Temperature: 70 C is showing above normal temperature -
All other Temps are reading Normal, so this may indicate a worn / wearing Motherboard. Please try to inspect it and clean the area -

The beeping sounds are a different story. Those are kinda random from the "de leeee"s

Whats the normal temperature that my system/motherboard should be? Youre suggesting i open up the computer and check it out? What solution is there to this?

Just to add to the excelent advice you are getting from noknojon, being that this is a Dell computer, have you booted up and hit the F12 key and ran the Dell Diagnostics on all your hardware including the hard drive?

Did you get any errors?

Max listed operating temperature is 55 Celsius...your Speccy reflects considerably more than that.

Bump- pressing f12 doesnt do anything.
I press it multiple times at the first screen and it continues to load windows instead

OK -
You press F12 after it loads and prior to doing anything else - See what happens then.

Another reason I never purchased a Dell ..............

EDIT - I lost your post when it was moved -

Yes it is F12. As soon as your turn on your computer and you see the Dell Logo start hitting F12 for the menu to appear.
