i cant put up with this

Hi
It may be that the internal system speaker is acting as an alarm. Typically, the alarm will sound in the event of either the cpu or the system overheating. It may also be triggered by incorrect voltages (cpu or on one of the power rails).

If you don't already have a way of monitoring the temps etc, then try Everest :

Run everest then select the Computer->sensor branch in the left pane. See if your cpu & system (motherboard) temps are reported & let me know what they are.

Hi

The overheating threshold that triggers the alarm is normally set in the bios. EG if it is currently set to 65C, then as soon as the cpu temp reaches 65C, the alarm will sound.
Obviously you can stop this from happening by increasing the threshold but that's not normally advisable - depends on what it is currently set to.

What type of cpu do you have?
Also, I suggest that you monitor the cpu temp, especially while the system is under heavy load. The system temp is fine but your cpu temp is a bit high.
