I ran a program that searches the hard drive for lost files and it does an intensive scan and during this time it also beeps.
YES - It's ALWAYS a good idea to back up your files.
Do you think I should start backing up my files
If you have another hard drive available that won't hurt. Whether you go and buy a new hard drive is up to you of course. I'd like more diagnostic info before I point the finger at your hard drive.
or even clone it with Norton Ghost to another hard drive?

I think you should first check the blowers ,one way is to use a screw driver lake a stethoscope and you can feel the vibration and here too JL
I just recently a couple of months ago bought a new computer and about 2 weeks ago I have started to have problems with a beeping or maybe even a squeeky high pitched sound coming from the computer. The sound comes when I start playing games such as Battlefield 1942, Age of Empires 2, and WarCraft 3. It starts during high action scenes with lots of shooting or fighting and with B1942 the game starts to be choppy and slow. Also the red led light at front of computer is flashing too.
Here are my specs.
Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz
512MB DDR Ram
WinXP Proffesional with SP2
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE 256 MB
There is no reason why the game should be choppy as this should be more than enough power. Also I have updated the Drivers and looked for any loose connections but nothing seems to work. I know for sure it has nothing to do with the monitor, speakers, or CD drive, as I have already disconnected them and the sound is still there. Also I am not running too many programs as during the game in task manager CPU usage is nowhere near 100%.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
