    My computer peeps!!!!

    Sometimes my computer begins to peep. Usually this happens when I run cpu-intensive programs.

    Can it be that it is my power supply that is peeping?

    I've put my ear against it at the back of my computer, where the air flows out and I can hear the peeping clearly. There are people that say that it is my CPU but I can't distinguish, the sounds is too high for that.
    The sounds is also audible when I go into BIOS.

    I've disconnected power on all my IDE-devices and I didn't hear the sound in BIOS, then I reconnected power on one of my cdrom drives and the sound reappeared.

    Also when I run SETI, the sound is audible but the sound always goes away after a period of time, a minute or 2 or 3.

    What is causing this sound and is there something wrong? It has always been like this. I've got an Aopen HX-45 case with the Aopen power supply of 235W. Here in Belgium, Europe, voltage settings are 220V.

    ...That "peep" usually is indicative of an overheating CPU, or under voltage problems. Get into your case and see if your cpu is running to hot. If your mobo has a temperature indicator on it, check the temp of that cpu.

    Ok, my temperature can go up to 61C.
    This is high, I know, but I've been told by Abit that the temperature is read wrong by the motherboard..

    I don't overclock so I cannot see how temperature can go so high...

    If I put my hand to the heatsink when temperature should be 61C, I can hold my hand on it without burning myself

    Also when I put a temperature sensor next to the processor core..temperature is 10C lower than the one displayed in BIOS

    There are several people with such high temperatures..also BE6-2 owners

    My computer is very stable...although that is what my CPU testing program tells me

    Sometimes I get lock ups and my computer keeps peeping

    so..what do yo people think?

    What kind of peeping? Does it come from the PC speaker, or is it a mechanical thing, or from your speaker, etc? My sound card gets interference from my cooling fans and I'll hear a little crackle. It might be intereference from another source.
