For some time now, I have occasionally got an alarm (or siren) type of noise coming from my base unit. It only seemed to be when playing one particular game (Command & Conquer 3).

Recently however, the noise has become sporadically more frequent and lasts for longer periods of time sometimes. :thumbsup:

From my own research, two suggestions I have come across is that it's either 1) a conflict between hardware or 2) the PC overheating when running bigger/lots of applications.

Does anybody know for certain what it is and how it can be fixed?

Thanks muchly everyone.

Welcome to BC

Overheating would be my first guess

cleaning the pc interior
