Sometimes whilst watching online video from youtube/iplayer my system locks up no inputs work, bios beeps for 30 sec and then returns back to normal.It does it on mozilla/opera/chrome/ie broswers regardless.Tried doing a fresh reinstall of my video drivers but not success.

System manufacturer and model?

Have you looked up the BIOS beep codes for your system?

Are you sure the "beeps" are not system overheating warnings?

In the troubleshooting section of the manuel it says for that beep "memory of motherboard error".It used to go to bsod with a watchdog.sys error but now everything locks up for 30 sec or so then magically all works again.Thought it might be temperature related however i can play graphic/cpu intensive games for hours no problems.
