dan PC & intermittent tone from console

  Gardener101 22:13 06 Apr 2003

My dan PC of 1999 has started emitting intermittent tone signals from the console after about 20 minutes of each use after switching on. Normal PC functioning continues OK but the noise affects the human at the keyboard.
Cannot find any support service to enquire what this warning means and what I need to do.

Any advice will be appreciated

It's probably an overheating or fan speed alarm. You'll have to look at all your fans - probably one of them has stopped, or is going slow. You might be able to check in the BIOS, if your BIOS has it, what the temperatures and fan speeds are.
