A buddy of mine has a problem with his computer. When his kids play games either on the Internet or on CD Rom the following happens:
The Hard Drive does an Internal "Beep" Sound.
Seconds Later the Hard Drive will do a 2nd "Beep" Sound but a little longer duration.
Seconds after that the Hard Drive will do a 3rd "Beep" Sound a little longer than the second.
Then the "Beep" Sound remains on and does not shut off until the game is off the computer of stopped.
The Computer works fine but it just makes these weird Sounds,

What can it be? - Is it possibly that the CPU is too Hot?

The sound comes internal from the computer not from any operating program.

Please help

Welcome jeffothebushman <_<

Some newer hard drives do have tiny speakers that will beep when the hard drive is overheating. I would first check that all the fans are operating. If you built the system yourself I'd consider adding some additional fans, or cleaning up your cables to improve airflow. If the system was purchased complete, I'd contact the mfg. about replacing the hard drive.
