PC making strange noises

I will be working merrily along on my PC, but after about an hour of use, the PC will freeze with a high pitched tone. I'm on Win ME (try not to laugh).

There doesn't seem to be any particular application that causes this....can anyone suggest why this might be happening?

Any help appreciated!

Could be a fan not working properly and overheating is happening. How old the PC and when was it cleaned inside of dust?

The PC is 5 years old now. I haven't cleaned it out for a couple of years actually, so I'll give that a go. Thanks.
