When it beeps is it 1 long beep or a series ?
It sounds like a CPU overheating issue.
I would open the case & inspect the CPU heatsink/fan & see if they are dirty.
I would also start the unit with the case open & watch the fan to see if it is spinning properly.
One other thing you can do is download a utility that monitors the temperature & install it.
PC Wizard is aq small system info utility that will show the temps [provide the chipset has the feature]http://www.cpuid.com/download/pcw2008_v1871.exe
Once it's installed open it & click on the icon in the lower right that looks like a temp gauge.
Post the Processor temp.
If you minimize PC Wizard to the taskbar it will show the temp in the upper right corner of the monitor & you can see if the CPU is overheating when the unit starts beeping.
