Hi,
I am running Windows XP Professional on my Lenovo R52 laptop. It has recently started beeping. It doesn't happen right away, but after the computer has been on for awhile. It's super irritating, but not that I have googled it, I see it could also be a really bad thing? What should I do? Thank you.

System manufacturer and model?

Are there onscreen error messages when the beeping begins?

What do you do to stop the beeping?

Possibly worth a look, http://www.fixya.com/search/p564726-lenovo_thinkpad_r52_184822u_pc_notebook/beeping .

It is an Intel Pentium 1.86Ghz. No error message. I turned it off and on today and so far no beeping yet. I will look at the link you sent. Thanks

Lenovo R52 think pad makes 4 beeps after computer has been on awhile. Once it starts beeping there is a small break and then it beeps again 4X. I checked the FixYa, but no solution posted.

I would guess that it's either an overheating warning...or a RAM/motherboard problem.

In any case, I'll move your topic to the hardware forum where the more knowledgeable can try to help.

I think that you should check the registered CPU temperature in the BIOS, as a first step before doing anything else.

Max temperature for that CPU is 85 Celsius...anything near (or in excess of) that and overheating is a confirmed suspect, IMO.

After finding the CPU temperature, I'd turn it off.
