:tazz: My computer was built by my ex who chose to overclock my system. He is now my ex and I have no clue why my computer starts beeping (similar to an alarm) then decides after 5 or 10 minutes to restart itself. I've made it into the BIOS settings, but I'm not sure what I'm looking to do. I'm suspecting the overclocking is causing my PC to overheat. I have a fan positioned, but, I read that even a fan does not always cool the system enough. My current CPU temp is 129 F and my System temp is 95 F. Any suggestions?

Your CPU is fine i think but all the data cables from HD, DD, DVD etc. are not connected in the way they are supposed to.

try to get them in the correct way and see if that helps

Hi,

Does this sound like a European police siren? Wee woo,wee woo,

If it does that indicates cpu overheat and the reason the computer shuts down.
129F cpu temp is not enough to do this but is the 129F when you are using the fan to blow in the case side?

Could you tell me what mobo ( motherboard) and cpu you have?

it is not the problem, but 95 is too much, im not an expert on overclocking, but definantly undo the overclocking-reset the bios.
