Default !!urgent

Hey guys,
Whenever I use a RAM heavy application; Counter-Strike: Source, Oblivion, Nero are the ones I have experienced it with, my motherboard let's out a long never-ending beep. I think it's a DRAM error but I'm not sure.

Im guessing you have 2 sticks of ram? Try it with just one stick of ram and try some of them programs again, then swap the ram over and test again. Just want to see its a bad stick of Ram your machine might be trying to use. Also check in Bios with your Current CPU speeds and temps.
