My Dell Inspiron 620 Desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium was beeping every couple of minutes. I figured it was the CMOS battery, so I replaced it. Now, it beeps once every 15 minutes or so. Any ideas why?

Hello onalandline,

 

Apart from the beep how does the computer behave.

 

The single beep could be a thermal issue warning.

Mostly normal. Seems to be a little slow at times. No hardware issues that I know of.

One of the symptoms of overheating is the computer lagging, the beep that you are getting is not a BIOS beep else you would get it on powering up.

 

We should take a look at your temps and voltages.

 

Please take expanded screenshots and only use the method below to attach them.

 

Download Speedfan from here and install it.  Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.  The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

 (this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

 

Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here

 

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... Click on the More Reply Options tab then after typing in any response you have... click on Choose File...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on Attach This File...on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

 

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

Phil, thanks for your help. I am back home now, and the family has not heard any more beeps lately. I have had the computer on now for a couple of hours today, and no beeps. I have a self-healing computer! Take care.

You are welcome onalandline  :)

Must have been a temporary blip as opposed to a beep then  :lol:

 

Levity apart, thanks for letting us know and any further problems let us know, likewise you also take care  :thumbup2:

 

Edit: Corrected typo.
