Motherboard beeps

Some background. We've just got a replacement harddrive from a warrenty, the previous harddrive worked fine with no beeps. This one beeps inexplicibly. It's the same model of harddrive the computer started with, so I'm sure it's not a compatability issue.

The motherboard is beeping, almost constantly at times, while I'm using it. Not during start up, which I know would signal an error code, but when I'm using it, seemingly randomly. I already disabled the beep file in regedit and the beep file in non plug and play drivers. I would really like to know how to make the motherboard stop beeping, preferably without opening the case up. Thanks.

You might want to try a program like Scunia and update your drivers for the HDD as well as the BIOS. It worked for me.

I had one like that..... maybe it's your motherboard trying to tell you that it's melting.....lol
But seriously, it may be an overheating issue

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a motherboard problem, as we've replaced the harddrive a few times now and they keep breaking, so it's obviously not the harddrive. ;p

But it's been on for several days with little to no slowdown so a heat problem, if it does exist, is minimal. (Or my motherboard is highly heat resistant. :))

Edit: ALso, where would I find out what model of HDD I have (I assume HDD is hard disk drive, IE hard drive)? And would updating BIOs drivers involve flashing the BIOs?
