computer feezing & making 1 beep noise

  richard4796 09:14 09 Feb 2007

My computer freezes for about 4 secs and then i get a 1 sec beep from inside my pc.

Some 1 in these forums told me to download
the memtest86 thingy when i tried to install it, it did not do much to be honest
is it supposed to run some sort of a test on my pc ?

a black screen flash for like .5 of a sec.. but nothing.....

any ideas how i can stop this 1 sec freezing & 1 sec bleep ?

i have checked my event viewer in control pane; adminstrive section bit and no error is showing once there is a bleep ?

any ideas ?

Does it always freeze when you are using a certain program?

i dont think so..
i currently have 2 web pages open and msn.. it is still doing it...

it seems random.. not to a program.. i have norton security 2007... dont think it is that.. i had it 2 weeks before it started doing this

it is very strange
im not sure what it can be.. but some times it freezes and does a 1 - 2 sec beep about 6 times in a row...

Just wondering if you have Windows Firewall running as well as Nortons.If so turn one of them off.You could try running computer with norton Firewall turned off,If that does not work try it with the Anti-Virus turned off,As soon as I hear someone having problems with there computer and they are using Norton,I always assume its a Norton problem.Have you just upgraded to Internet Explorer 7 in the last two weeks bye any chance.
