Getting A Really Weird Mobo Alarm
I just got some new RAM into my system. The installation was smooth and the computer has ran perfectly for about a day or so. However, starting today, an alarm on my motherboard has been going off.
My first thought was that there was some heating problem, but I checked my bios heat thresholds and case temperatures and the computer did not seem to be getting very hot.
I thought the alarm was just going off randomly, but I now realize there are certain things I can do to trigger it. For example, the alarm will typically go off when watching a flash video in firefox. If I pause the video, than it will stop after a few seconds, only to resume almost immediately after restarting the video.
I really don't know what is going on and am puzzled by how certain things I do are setting off this hardware alarm.
