i think you have misunderstood, the computer is fine while im not playing games and the beep is continuous, nothing works at that time, the keyboard, anything works. im saying this because i just have checked the beep bios thing that you said before and i think that have nothing to do with it, i might be wrong, i mean, im not an expert, anyway thanks again, by the way , whats your name? i would like to keep in touch if you dont mind, you never know , you may need my help one day.

A continuous beep while using the system usually is an alarm to indicate overheating. I'd suggest downloading this free utility to monitor your system temps: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Write down the temp readings when you first install it, then take a quick look at them when the beeping starts - this'll give you something to compare.
