In order for anyone to assist, you need to be more specific than "My computer keeps alarming".

What program is alarming you? Is there a pop-up alert or message being displayed and if so what does it say.

:thumbsup: to BC flogary,

Quietman7 is right, you do need to provide some factual info if people are going to help. See my tutorial in New User Orientation forum.

If the system is beeping that may indicate overheating.

Download the system analysis program 'Everest' so you can get detailed information about your system:
Everest download
Temperatures, voltages and fan speeds are shown under Computer>Sensor.

Post those figures back here.
