my pc makes a high pitched beep when playing games is it over heating or something

If it's a continuous high pitched beep then it could be the thermal monitor alarm telling you it is overheating. Give your PC a good clean, esp the fans and check the CPU fan/cooling unit is seated correctly.

If you have an Award Bios it is the CPU overheating, you might have a bad fan.

My pc somtimes beeps when playing games if i press to many buttons at once,like trying to move up across and duck at the same time,dont know if thats what your problem is just an idea.

the beep is not at the BIOS or at the start up of the PC itself it is only during games which i guess is because they are using alot of the PCs power

Try turning off all alarms and warnings in MBM5 (assuming there is no problem with temps etc).

If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running.

how can i check all the CPU tempretures etc and does any one know what tempretures every thing should be at

You can check via the Bios, to get into the Bios you press a button on the keyboard before windows loads usually Delete but it should tell you on the screen, be careful not to alter anything just look through untill you see the temps. The temperature depends on what your processor is, mines an AMD Athlon XP and typically runs at 45 degrees or so for the CPU and 25-30 for the system. Post back with the processor you have in your PC and someone will tell you what is normal. For the Bios bleeps thing you can look at this click here
