Is the squealing coming from the speakers, or your case.
Describe the beeping (long, short, a mix of the two).

1. Has this just started to occur?
2. What sound, what video card are you using?
3. How much RAM do you have?

Cheers,
John

Dear Diaz,

With that comp you seem to be touching on a Gamer status.

Welcome to a whole new realm of .... situations.

As a Gamer wannabee, let me tell you some of the distractions you will be facing.

You will have to go to the web pages of the manufacturer's of your equipment to download the latest whatever.

I mean this...really!

Download one at a time and restart computer. Yes this is time consuming but it will insure a good download.

Hope this helps,

Junkdk :thumbsup:
