hi, the problem is so bad ive resulted in making this thread, so every 20 seconds or so i get this beeping freezing thing, the mouse stops and the computer beeps for about 2-3 seconds, ive never experienced anything like it...

im running windows XP, and its not my PC thats having the problem, but i offered to try and fix the problem...

Hi Winxx, can you boot into safe mode? Does the pc still beep and freeze once in there?

Is it a continual beep or a set number of beeps

Can you run all antivirus checkers/spyware finders etc on the pc?

are there any error messages at all?

if you start pc as normal how many beeps do you get before XP appears?
