PC Speaker Killing Me
    #3289319 - 10/28/04 02:56 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I know there are countless people on here who have superior knowledge of computers to me. This probably seems easy to fix for some people, but that's why I posted.

Randomly, my PC speaker will just start going "beep beeeeeep...beep beeeeep.....beeep beeeeeeep etc etc." and won't stop unit I restart the PC. I opened task manager and let that graph run which shows CPU Usage History. I've noticed this beeping only starts when I hit roughly 70%.

What can I do to shut this thing up? It is so damn annoying.

is the sound coming from your actual speakers or from the motherboard (onboard system beep sound)? what do you happen to be doing when this sound starts? What OS are you using?

If it is the pc speaker in the case just open up the case and unplug it. That or cut the wires.

I have a hunch it could be overheating. biO, it is def the PC speaker and not coming from any external speakers and there is no way to stop it (even if I close everything and walk away for a long period of time)

I've noticed I can make it come on by playing arcade games here at the shroomery. About 5 minutes into the game it starts beeping. Like I said I opened up tak manager and looked at the CPU Usage Graph. It always starts beeping when the CPU usage goes over 68/70%

Any suggestions short of opening the bitch up and unplugging or cutting wires?

Sounds like it's probably a temp warning. Get an app which tells you the CPU temp. The temp warning is probably set in your BIOS control panel

The only time I have seen that happen it was caused by a syslogd process running which had filled up its log file and was some kind of alert built into the program.

I had the case off my machine and was playing unreal and it overheated and turned off. After it turned off thru my speakers are lady voice kept saying "cpu overheated" over and over or somthing like that. I thought it was cute. I have an asus motherboard.

Well I went into the bios and found out that cpu temp warning beep was on. The highest temp you can have it go off at is 70C so I just had to disable it. Works fine now.

What is a dangerous temp?

Set it to 70.  If it DOES start beeping from then on, thats BAD, turn it off RIGHT AWAY.

I use Mother Board Monitor 5.  Its a good proggie for temp watching.  You can make it go in the tray and it'll show you CPU and Mother board temps.

Normal CPU temps should be below 50.  Thats good.
60 is not so great.
70 is red zone.
80 is probably funny smells coming from your case.

My Athlon runs at around 66-68.  I have the side off, but this apartment is so hot it hardly makes a difference.  I fear my baby.  :microwave:
But i'm positive that it wont go above that because my CPU is at 100% due to [Email]Folding@Home[/Email] running constantly in the background.  On very hot days i get scared and turn off [Email]F@H[/Email], and put a fan blasting into the open case.

Download MBM5 and see what your temps are now (idle).
Then take the side case off and check the temps after 20 mins of running (idle).
Then try aiming a fan at the cpu and check temps again.

You might also have a defective CPU fan, or simply just shitty stock heatsink. If you dont want an open computer case, just buy a better heatsink+fan combo with a good thermal paste.  It can make a huge difference.

Thanks for the help. He left it on 70 with the beep option on, and he is able to monitor the temp from bios. He left it sitting for a minute and it hit 70 right there and started beeping nonstop even after the temp dropped back down to 65.

Will have to check into the fan and the heatsink.

Thanks again.

Wow it hit 70 right off the bat?  Sounds weird.

There might also be the slight chance that the thermostat that measures CPU temps could be in the wrong position. I dont know much about this but i've heard about it.

How many fans in your case?  It sounds like you need one on the front/bottom, and one on the back.  This way, air gets sucked in close to the ground on the front, and blown out the back creating cool airflow.

A good forum for this kinda stuff is at www.extremeoverclocking.com

They know plenty about cooling, as overclocking tends to be a bit spicy.  Good luck!

(btw. If the bios alarm wont stop after the temps drop below the set temp, disable it, and i suggest MBM 5 again, as it also has an alarm option, and you can turn that off anytime.)

I had a problem with my CPU overheating a few months back. My computer was maybe 6 months old, and it was overheating. I opened it up, took a look inside and the heat sink was stuffed with dust. After getting all of it out of there it cooled right down. Perhaps something similiar is the problem?

I will take a look, I have a feeling there is just way too much dust in there. Thanks you guys for the help. Wouldn't be the same without the old shroomery.
