Now this may sound strange and it has only just started to do this but whilst playing online games the motherboard is making beeps every so often and there not all the same pitch, i have checked to see if the cpu temp was high as that would cause it to beep but that wasnt the problem which has left me with a big ? the only other thing i thought it might be is that someone is hacking into my pc other than that i realy dont know any ideas people

I get the occasional "strange beep." If you have got a decent firewall, then I don't think anyone would be hacking in. The only reason I could think of for the beeping was that something in my laptop was getting hot and it didn't like it.

Then again, I could be totally wrong! Just a thought :)

Are you using the keyboard?

If you catch the wrong key (normally this happens whilst typing text) a beep is emitted; you might hit two keys together, for instance, such as A and Caps Lock.

Hitting too many keys at once, especially with older games will cause beeps. If I hold 5 keys down I get a beep.
