OK heres the problem, whenever i run a game that has been installed into the computer it begins to bleep in two tones, a high pitch then a slightly less high pitch, this will continue until i exit the game.
In which it will continue for a farth 20 seconds or so then stops completely, if i decide to play the game again, it will after about 10-30 mins start bleeping again.

I will do anything to make this damn things stop. ive checked up on a few sites and the tone is smililar to one of these.


Repeating High/Low CPU Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.

Repeating (endless loop) Memory error Check for improperly seated or missing memory.

Is there a way to actualy remove to bleeping thing whatever it is from the computer, whitout affecting anything?

Shut the internal speaker off.

It's called the system speaker and it can be disabled in the device manager, but be aware that other audible warnings such as overheating will be disabled as well.

The computer is warning you that the CPU is overheating and may become damaged. There are a few things you can do:

1. Try to fix the overheat problem by cleaning the interior of your PC. (See this tutorial Cleaning the Interior of your PC )
Or install additional case fans to provide more airflow.

2. Monitor the PC temperatures with a utility e.g. Everest or Speedfan.

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.

Download SpeedFan.

3. Change the temperatures at which the warnings start.
These are set in the BIOS. Since there are so many varieties of BIOS I cannot give explicit instructions. Your motherboard manual will tell you how to access the BIOS and where to find the temperature settings.
If you cannot find the settings post back with some details about your system and we'll try to guide you.

There's still a freeware version of Everest available at oldversion.com.

Get 1.51, the latest version that still has software listings and keys available.

Be aware that, without the sound, you won't know when your computer overheats. This can kill your CPU - be careful!
