Question XP loaded, internal speaker beeping..

Hi,

My computer has XP loaded and I can use the computer fine, but it has a continuous beep that goes off every 3-4 seconds. So like:

Beep
4 seconds
Beep
4 seconds
Beep
4 seconds


and it doesn't stop until the PC is just off. But the weird thing is, is the PC works fine even when it's beeping!

What's going on?

Thanks

PS: restarting doesnt help

Check your board manual for the beep code

Typically, a repeating beep is a memory error. Do you have any temperature monitoring software installed? You may have an overheating problem or a low RPM fan.
