This is what a friend just told me: I have a Pentium II 233. When it has run for an hour or two It starts to beep continuosly but everything still works fine. I shut it down for 10 minutes, start it up and it is OK for another hour, then it starts to beep again.
The beep does not come from the speaker but somewhere inside the "box".
I am going there to see for myself but thought I would get some insite first. Any clues?

The Pentium II itself doesn't have any beeper as shipped by Intel but I've seen a number of 3rd party fans that have overtemp alarms.  You might want to check out your system to make sure all fans are operating normally.  You might also want to see if you can get it to start beeping when the cover is off and locate where the beep is coming from.  Some system builders also put overtemp alarms near the disk drives.

Well, not bad. I failed to mention the motherboard manufacturer and model. Yes the problem was the "Temperature Core Heat Detection". The system temp is rising enough to set off the alarm. I will try to figure out why.
Thanks jhance!

Well I looked at the system and "lo and behold" the power supply fan ports were so full of accumulated dust there was no way for air to pass through.
