Hello all - wee problem my PC has.
When my machine has been on a while, or is asked to play a game or something, I get random beeps coming from from my tower. If I set-up a scan on reboot, it stops only to return after a wee while.
Fans are working fine, there are no strange processes in Task Manager - it is just really strange. Today I came across the Win32 P2P Worm Alcan.a and have just spent a couple of hours getting rid of that - no idea if that was causing the problem. Could it be overheating, or a faulty sensor?
Any ideas most appreciated. Details of machine below - many thanksjava script:emoticon('
