It sounds like you have a short in your mouse wire.

You can wiggle your wire while moving your mouse and see if it'll stop moving and (or) start beeping again.

If it happens to you again, then it's definitely your mouse that's gone bad.

For the most part...... yes, that's it.

I can make it sound even worse for you, like:

a. maybe your motherboard connection for the mouse is bad, which would mean either you solder it, or buy a new motherboard.
b. your RAM is bad, and it caused the mouse to malfunction briefly
c. your hard drive is going bad, and it caused your mouse to malfunction briefly

.....but other than that, what you described in your original post sounds like there is a short in your mouse wire. At least verify it by doing the wiggling of your mouse wire.

If it's what I think it is, you'll just need a different mouse.

Overheating because the fan is not working can also cause a beeping
