My computer speakers are constantly (almost) making a alert bleeping sound. What is causing this and how do I get it to stop?

There must be some circuitry mistakes happening with your speakers.

Do they do that when you lower the volume as well??

Do you have them close to any high Frequency devices??
Such as Microwave and other units like that...

You mean that your system...or do you mean that something is causing a noise to be transmitted via the speakers?

I'm not sure what you mean.

If it's the system...chances are it's an overheating alert (just a guess).

Thanks for the reply. The speakers are close to the monitor and no when I turn the volume down the sound is not heard. But just as soon as I turn it up the beeping comes back. It clearly seems to be a sound generated from the computer and outputed to the speakers. This problem started about two weeks ago and the only solution I have is to turn the volume down. It give the sound like a key is stuck on the keyboard. But I exchanged the keyboard and it still beeps. Any other thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

It does not seem to be getting hot. It is in an AC office and the fans are working fine.

Unplug the speakers, plug in headphones.
Still making noise, would have to be the computer or a component.

From here
In Windows 2k/XP there is a way to disable the beep, go into device manager, select
the "Show hidden devices" option, go to "non plug and play device" find that device
named "Beep" and set it to disabled.
