Bips

By jonatan_jebr ·
I would actually see if anyone could help me, my computer makes some bips while I'm on it, I have gone in research and I found that different bips means different problems, my computer makes just 1 bit, randomly, it might be every 1 min, or every 2 hours, I don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help me?

"Bips" can be multiple things, it could be a program that you have installed that is blocking a pop-up, or a cookie, or adware/spyware trying to run. Try booting and staying in safe mode and see if your "bips" continue, if so then you can most likely rule out software at that point. If that is the case, possibly a bad CMOS battery?

Well, I have done some more research, with the info u told me, and I don't think is any kind of pop up bloker, since most of them are "bips" from the speakes, the bips I get are from the CPU speaker, and I have done some "testing" if u can call it that way, and found out that the computer bips more often while I play almost any kind of 3d game. any suggestions?

It could be the system warning you if your system case temperature or cpu is overheating. Here is a link to a utility that might be of some help to determine if that is the case.

Also some/most BIOS have a page where you can view the current CPU temperature. After the system has been off for several hours and has had time to cool off turn it on and check the temp, then play the 3D games and when you hear a "bip" restart your computer and check the temperature again. Also some systems BIOS can warn you by beeping when the temperature reaches a dangerous level, check to see if that is turned on. If it is take care of it quickly before your system completely dies.
