There is a suggestion from another forum that it may be related to your PSU, eliminating of course overheating and sometimes when you have too many key configs going on at once your pc can beep at you
p.s. you dont say how many beeps or if there long or short........

your sound setup? It sounds like (no pun!) that your PC speaker could be involved somewhere..

Have you checked dxdiag? (start, run and type dxdiag) - perform all the sound tests

It may be overheating and the beeps are the bios warning sensor telling you it has reached the set temp,then again it could be any of the other suggestions.

Go into BIOS and check what the BIOS is set to beep for overheating Warning
