i installed a asus m3a motherboard yesterday and everything works brill. the only problem i had was an annoying crackle coming from the satelite speakers, and everytime you moved the mouse it made a noise. even the clock ticking on the desktop. so went into the speaker settings, found a slider that said pc beep and turned it right down and the crackle dissapears with no loss of volume to music being played. so i just wondered whay is pc beep and what is the slider controlling. if i dont respond to any messages after 9.30 i will later on, work calls. i would like to know the answer, i googled it, but nothing.

I remember this on a computer many moons ago.

Never found out what caused it, but it suddenly went away.

"pc beeps" would normally be the small speaker in the case - or more often these days a "sounder" on the motherboard.

If it's volume control is set too high, then I suppose it could pick up extraneous interference, which will be shown as noise.

Inside a PC is a very noisy (in the electrical sense) environment, plenty of stray signals floating about to be picked up.

Perhaps this motherboard outputs the normal sounder noises through the external speakers (saves them even the cost of a sounder). That would explain why it's got it's own volume control.
