HI, I'm having trouble with my PC on startup, I randomly get a long continuous beep/tone after about 6 seconds after I turn the power on. Windwos loads as normal on my monitor and seems to be unaffected UI wise. If restart the PC it stops for half a second and continues beeping. If I shut down the PC from the power switch it stops and then runs normally without beeping on the next startup.
So I've read a few topics on this and they seem to point out that a PSU or CPU error is likely the cause. My PSU is barely a year old so it seems the least likely problem. SO either the connection to the CPU or the CPU itself might be in trouble. Can anyone shed anymore light on this? Does the fact that my PC runs in the background on the beeping sound mean anything different, or that the sound goes away after a power off/power on?
Appreciate all the help, hoping it's at worst the connection as I'm all out of cash.
