as far as I know, any "beep" sound comming from your computer isn't good

Look through your manual of your MOBO and look for the section called "Warnings"


Could you give some specs?

boot your computer up.. right click on my computer ..manage ...event viewer...Here you will find 3 categories and a list of each. Your system reports any errors it encounters here. You want to search in all three categories and look for any details with a red symbol by them. Yellow are also significant, but red ones are the ones to research first.

To research them, the best way is to look inside the details provided. There is a link in there that tells you to "click for more details". Do it. It'll take you to the Microsoft site with some possible causes and solutions.

If you are running monitoring software tell us the temps and voltages, if not start the computer and enter bios/setup and look around for your cpu temp and the voltages of the +3.3V,+5V and +12V.

Also take a look inside if the cpu fan heatsink is cloged with dust use a can of compressed air to clear it out, becarefull don't turn the can on its side, keep it upright, turning it on its side can cause liquid to come out
