On my PC a couple of times a day, I am getting a couple of beeping sounds.
This is not bios warnings on boot, it seems to happen an hour or so into PC being on.
I thought it might be a temperature warning and am now running Speedfan. although haven't "caught" one of the beeps yet. Last night the highest temp I had was 47C but at moment getting 34C on one sensor, and 20C on another. The fans all are clear, clean and working.
The beep does sound a bit like a virus warning. I am running Avira and this is showing all clear and no indication of infection appears at time of beep. Have scanned both with Avira and Ant-Spyware software. All ok.
No other software running that looks a likely culprit.
In Event Logs can't see any error messages that time with the alert.
My hard drive temperature and health all look ok.
My system spec:
A7V8X-X asus mobo with Athlon Barton CPU Running XP Pro
Def a result of Avira virus scan, as have just managed to recreate beep by running a manual scan. Think the beep was coming as a result of the scheduled scan but no detection warning was left displayed.
I have deleted the culprit, a low risk nasty.
Still leaves me puzzled about the overactive HDD and CPU, and temps
