So every once and a while my desktop on windows 8 will make a beeping sound kind of thing. It really just sounds like an electronic beep, and it does not happen very often. I have no idea what happened for it to start doing this but its really annoying for this loud beep to happen every like 20-30 minutes? Any help? I have no idea.

Are there any motherboard voltage or fan speed alarms set in the BIOS? - these can cause random beeps if settings are too tight or a sensor is faulty. I had a motherboard with a temperature sensor that was prone to showing momentary temperature spikes which caused random beeps & have had fans with faulty speed sensors that would momentarily read zero.

My friend had same issue. It might be a program. Check the icon if you have one in your hotbar at the buttom of your screen and click the up arrow or if there isnt one just look for an icon with a bell picture
