I'm at a loss here. If I have any windows open in full screen or playing a game, after some time the computer randomly starts making a POST beep. Once that starts the beeps can last anywhere from 5 seconds to going non-stop and the only way to stop it at that point is restarting the computer. I've never experienced something like this and am trying to figure it out. I went into Device Manager and disabled the internal speaker, but it still occurs. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

win7 pro 64-bit
GA-MA770-DS3 Motherboard
AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core
DDR2 800 6144MB RAM
GeForce GTX280 1GB

Please forgive me if I am forgetting anything. If needed, I can post a full DxDiag as well. As for this issue happening in safe mode, it has happened a couple times then.

I am still having the random beeping/buzzing from the board. I can not find any speaker on the board to remove the wire to the speaker. If anyone has any ideas, Please Please Please help me.

Well, the fact that it happens in safe mode points to a hw rather than a sw issue. Other than that, I'm afraid I can't me of much help.

Maybe its an over heating issue? When was the last time you cleaned out the inside of you computer? Also download and run this: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php and take a screen shot of the temps. :)

Do you have another keyboard? if yes, please change your keyboard and see does your problem happens or not, sometimes that beep because keyboard keys are accidentally pressed for a period of time.

I have fixed my problem. Turns out the buzzing was a result of my video card failing. Last night I got the BSOD with error 116 and below that on the BSOD NVLM (not completely sure on the full part or correct order of lettering given) that indicated the card and driver were no longer working. Installed a new card today and everything is back to normal. If I notice anything out of the ordinary, I will update for the sake of others in case someone runs into this issue down the line.
