OK, since last week I've been getting a system beep while IN Windows. This is not the POST beep (which is normal). This is after I've logged into XP and all else seems normal. Every once in awhile I'll get one beep and now this weekended I started getting two beeps along with the one beep every so often. How do I diagnose this problem? What tools do I have at my disposal? Is there a log file for this somewhere? I've looked at the Event logger and it seems normal.

Thanks for any help.

First thing I would do...go into the BIOS/Setup and see if the system/motherboard heat warning is enabled (I disable mine). That could be what you are hearing periodically.

Thanks for that Louis. My BIOS had it disabled.

Speaking of temps, I also run something called SpeedFan which gives me the temp of several devices. The CPU is at a normal temp. The only thing that is a bit toasty is the GPU. However, after looking up some info on the net about it most seem to run it even higher than that, 75C in some cases.

Any other places I can look?

Thanks

I don't know of any other sources for a beep/alarm of any sort...other than the BIOS alert systems.

Have you checked your system documentation?
