Hey everybody!

I've been getting this strange bleeping noise whenever I'm busy on my computer. The only way I've stopped the beeping is by either closing all the programs I had open or by turning off the computer. Any ideas what this insanely annoying bleeping is? I've formatted the hard drive and reinstalled XP, so we can scribble out that it's a software problem, I'm sure this is hardware problems, thanks in advance!

Hello Bartikky,

I would agree that it is hardware related. Open control panel then administrative tools then event viewer. Look in the catagories for errors and warnings, let us know what you find.
Regards,

Alan.

System manufacturer and model?

Do you have an owner's manual covering such?

I believe some systems have warnings for overheating situations.

Alright, from what I've researched there is some component that is overheating in my computer but I cannot figure out what it is. I should have added that this bleeping goes High-Low-High-Low continuously, 1 2 1 2. Until I close all the programs and windows I had open or shut down/standby/hibernate the computer.

That definately sounds like the CPU is overheating, check heatsink for dust, reseat if necessary.

If you remove/reseat the heatsink as suggested, you will need to clean and add a new coat of thermal compound on the CPU

Reference: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Please ensure that you use thermal grease/paste/whatever...and not thermal epoxy, http://compreviews.about.com/cs/cooling/a/aaTCompounds_2.htm

Thanks for your help everybody, I will try this as soon as I have enough time. I'm going over to Scotland in the morning! :thumbsup: I will only be there for 3 or 4 days, so will try the removing and reseating as soon as I get back.

Well between me and my dad we killed two birds with one stone, we bought a new chip for my motherboard and of course in doing so replaced the thermal paste (cleaned and then reapplied of course) but still we were left with my computer overheating after a few minutes of playing games. The chip has not gone to waste though because my dad is building another computer so he can have it. ;)

I do apologize if I have given false information but I had first thought there were 3 fans in my computer (we used 3 with the previous motherboard) but there are in fact just 2. Anyways I have a question, should the fan on the heatsink and chip be an exhaust fan or intake air onto the chip and heatsink?

Well well well .. the fan is exhausting the air instead .. I shall reverse the fan and see if this solves my overheating problems.
Both fans in the case have been exhausting the air in the case, I'll be back to tell you if this has solved my problem. ;)
