continuous tone emits from tower.

  Cara2 21:13 12 Aug 2006

After my computer has been on for several mins. a continuous tone emits from the tower. (the speakers are off).

If I don't close down swiftly, the computer locks up.

Any ideas?

Thanks Cara

Check health in BIOS to see how hot it's getting

Also check the CPU Fan is working as it should and clear the muck if any
