sounds like a temp problem to me. Go into ur BIOS to check ur cpu temp. usually the most reliable source. post it on here. also post ur specs

restart ur computer and keep pressing Delete as soon as it starts up again until it brings u too the setup screen (says Award or AMI BIOS at the top). then go to hardware monitor or something along those lines

you would not want to mute that warning sound. it should be warning you that the temps are too high in your computer.

First you will want to make sure that all of your fans are running.

Also make sure that there is adequate airflow around the case.

An alarm is a notification of overheating, and unless you do something, you may cause your computer to get all nice and toasty aka fried.

Just look at the fans and see if they are spinning. If they aren't... they probably aren't running.

But again, check the bios and tell us what kind of temps your processor is reaching.
