Hello,

Tured on my pc this morning and i get a constant beep through the speakers.

This only happens when i enter any profiles.

Noise only comes through speakers and have tested 2 speakers and headphones all with a constant beep.

Background application trying to get your attention?  I use DynDNS updater and it drove me nuts trying to find the beeping....  UPS software will do the same.

Use task manager to kill one application at a time till it stops.

Overheating?

Download Speedfan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php and see what your temperatures are.

Things to try:

1) Go into BIOS setup to determine if it is some sort of hardware error or a Windows task
2) Try "Safe Mode" boot to further isolate

Is the sound card integrated on motherboard?

It might have failed...

If so, rather than replacing motherboard, I would try (in BIOS) turning it off to isolate this...
Then replace with an inexpensive USB dongle (<$10)...

Another thing to try is playing some music... Does the beep come thru WITH the music or INSTEAD of it?

Still not clear to me the root cause, until each step is tried and the results posted back...

>>  reset bios and was fine :S

Do you mean resetting the BIOS fixed the problem?
