My laptop is beeping randomly when I'm using it and I don't know exactly the source of the issue.

 

Is there any tools that might help me to determine the cause of the random beeping?

 

It's getting frustratng hearing the beeping for hours.

My laptop used to make random beep sounds, it was so annoying. It turns out it was the HDD failing, evenually it failed and I lost the data on it.

 

I don't know if it's the same beep of mine, but I recommend to backup anything important and test the HDD or test the computer with another HDD.

 

I hope this helps.

My HDD passed and it says its all fine.

 

I notice my laptop is doing random noise when its overheating (i already cleaned the inside and its still doing noise)

Does this mean that you KNOW it is overheating ?

 Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.

Motherboard is 60C, CPU is 60C, HDD is 47C. Is that overheating? or just normal warm temperature?

 

----------

 

I really can't describe the noise pattern. It's random. Sometime, it doesnt beep. Sometime, it beeps alot.

 

When I turn it on, no noise. When I use it and watch vids/listen to music for a while, it starts to make noise.

 

I don't think it's a beep because I went in the BIOS and disabled beep sound, it still "beep".

Please download and run Speccy for a snapshot of your system. https://www.piriform.com/speccy This may help us figure it out for you.. Post the link it provides here.

I looked at your Speccy Report. A couple of concerns are that I see BitLocker service which is used by various viruses. The service is stopped so I'm not sure if it would be effecting your performance. I also noticed that your  RAM cycle time is 30 clocks. That seems extremely high and could explain the beeping you hear. Are you overclocking? The CPU temps were a little high at 58 C. The last minor issue I saw is that partition 3 has only 11% free space. It's recommended to have 15% but I doubt that has anything to do with you issues. I'm going  to let a hardware expert address the clock speeds. If you are overclocking you may want to back it off and see what happens.

 

Lastly, how old is this rig? Celeron processors are the lower end intel's and it may just be wearing out.

I bought my laptop on internet, the laptop is from year 2013.

 

isn't BitLocker came along with Windows 8.1? Can I remove it?

 

About the RAM cycle, im not so sure, but is there a way to "reduce"/"lower" it? How to?

 

For the partition, I don't know what should I do. It's unknown for me. How do I increase the free space?

Yes, my bad. I was thinking of BitTorrent. I'm still researching the clocking times. I'd still rather have someone more knowledgeable than I to address it to get you the best advise. As far as freeing space on Partition 3 you can just move files to a different drive or download Usease partition manage free edition. However I wouldn't worry too much about it other than not to add much more to it.

Excellent! My HDD also passed when it failed, however this may not be the same, this is as far as I go. I'll let an expert help, I hope you get it fixed soon!
