will tell you what the beeps mean, i would check the system temperature in the BIOS to check it is not overheating

Thanks,looks like temp warning
i`ve got bios set to warn of temps over 63c,so its obviously going over this.is this too hot for an athlon xp1900?,could fan/heatsink be failing?

If it has reached that temp, personally for me that is a little warm, try looking into a better cooling management,...i.e Extra case fans/extractiion/Better compound/etc....
You can turn it off quickly to see if that is definately the noise...

Cheers,been threatening for a while now to invest in quieter cooling.....ste
