For some games I play, like Battlefield 2142, the computer keeps beeping every 5/10 seconds. Do you know why?

Yea, that could be it. Have you tried not doing anything for a few seconds once you get into a server to verify?

*edit*- yea, 600th post

I'm not that silly. Although I could see some people getting caught out by it.

I can leave the computer alone and it will still beep

Is the computer itself beeping or the speakers?

Does it start after playing awhile,it may be getting hot. Do you feel a lot of heat. Clean case,cpu fan and fans. Is it beeping a pattern? A coded beep can be tracked from your bios. By posting it's pattern and your Bios and motherboard.

Are you pushing Shift a lot when you play the game. If you are, the computer starts beeping and then the Accessibility Option window opens in the background. To stop it, you should click on Settings under StickyKeys and uncheck Use shortcut and press ok and that should fix it, if thats the problem.
You will not like me if I'm angry.

I have a fair knowledge of computers and it's not sticky keys.

I'm going to move soon, so I'll try the pc in a more ventilated position, update it a bit and see what happens. I've got a Alpine Ez-cool case and decent fan, so I don't think it's the cooling.

If you post the beeping pattern as Boobme stated, we might be able to track this quickly for you.

If you're going to move the computer, while you're moving it, you could open up the case, clean it out really good and ensure that everything is tight and plugged in correctly (plugged in tightly).
