After being on for a while my computer does a high pitched tone it is like an alarm, it will stop for short periods but then continues again. I have had times where it will not sound, but will return next time I turn it on. We leave it turned off for that reason until we require it. Has anyone any suggestions on how to fix this, I believe it is a hardware problem. I would appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks

In order to help you please provide us with the make and model of your computer, if it is a custom build please provide the make and model of the motherboard.

Does this happen only when you first turn it on?

Is there any pattern to the beep, one solid beep, two short ones...?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Is it fair to assume that it is a sound from a speaker (like a warning beep), or is it perhaps a sound generated from moving parts (like bad ball-bearings)?

After it starts the beeping, go into bios and check the temperatures? Is the cpu fan clean? The rest of the computer also.

There are thermal warnings which beep on most computers when the cpu gets too hot.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

What sort of beeping is your computer making? Are the beeps short/quick/drawn out/ etc? I'm asking this because when you switch on your PC it goes thorugh a test know as POST (Power On Self Test). These tests are carried out to ensure that the comptuer meets the necessary system requirements before booting up. If the computer fails the POST, the computer then returns a beep code indicating what is causing the computer not to pass the POST. Generally, if the computer POSTs properly, you will receive a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice).

These beeps differ slightly depending on the make of the mobo and BIOS. More info here.

If all else fails, hit the reset button.
