HP Proliant ML310 G4 chirping or beeping constantly. Still running... What is it?

Hi working with HP Proliant ML310 G4, Windows Server 2003 SBS SP2

RAID Controller died and would not boot so I replaced it with a PCI-X SATA RAID card and it worked beautifully. About a week later I get a call that the server has started chipring constantly like "a bird is in the server cage with it" according to the lady sitting closest to the server closet.

I tried to find beeping/diagnostic codes on HP website but all it refers to is the POST beeping. Any clue where I can find out what this noise means? I'm sure we need to do something about it. Going on-site today to see if it's their APC Battery backup units perhaps or something. Any other tips greatly appreciated.

Agreed it's most likely the SATA controller which HP SMH won't pick up on as it isn't a HP one.

check also if the sound does come from a speaker, or from another device - it can be fan, or a bearing, or even a touching wire
