Check your Event Viewer for error messages around the time of the beep. To do this, go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Click on the Applications and System log files to look for the errors. If you find one around the time of the beep, double click on it and copy/paste that info into your next post.

Thanks, there weren't any from around the time it beeps.......It appears my processor is dusty and is overheating due to the added work of encoding......

Canned air does a good job of blowing out the fan and heat sink. Try placing a pencil through the fan blade to keep it from spinning while you blow it out. Remember to discharge yourself to the metal of the case before handling any of the components inside, electrostatic discharges can kill integrated circuits, like you RAM and the CPU.

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