Sorry, Eddie 2425, from your computer you mean?

Your CPU may be running too hot, have you any way of checking. Try a look in the BIOS when you start the comp for the temperature settings

the alarm comes from the tower and there are no burglars thanx

  JIM 21:23 10 Oct 2003

Glad you said tower as there are laptops around that have alarms built in.

Does the case feel hot to the touch?

Could it be a fan bearing Squeal ?

Any program errors showing?

You dont have this fitted do you.

AOC EC-ASB Fan Speed Adjustable Kit, comes with Alarm Function, which will be activated when DC fan stops running. Fan speed control function includes I, II, III, used to reduce the operating voltage, reduce the fan speed and also reduce the noise. Retail box.

More info on system poss.

Try again,

happens if there is no cd in optical drives or any external hardware working.

hardware meaning keyboard to, as a stuck key can give of a high pitch through systems speakers,or on board sound.

Anti-Virus Alarm Sounds, or any other software setup to give out a sound when finished with a project.
