Hello....I have a gigabyte motherboard with an intel chip. When I start my computer it does the normal POST beep and then about 5 seconds later the computer just has one long beep that doesn't stop....The weird thing is that windows continues to load while this long beep is happening...The computer finally shuts down by itself (sometimes it shuts down while on the windows 'user select' screen and sometimes it shuts down while the windows loading screen is visable)
I am a bit stumped....if it were a hardware problem(RAM Video Card etc) I thought it wouldn't continue to load windows
I am starting to think it is the CPU overheating as the time between
the POST beep and the long beep changes....sometimes it is 2 seconds, sometimes 7 seconds..
I am really not sure....any ideas???? THANKS
