Default computer beeping..

Hi everyone Long time no see Xd.
My computer has been having a strange problem. It keeps on beeping. It beeps a long beep, then 2 short beeps ( that's what I noticed today ) before I didn't notice the beeps.
I'm 99% sure this indicates something is wrong, but what is it? IDK. A Few weeks ago, my cousin came here and cleaned up my computer tower and my ram and the computer restarted working after it used not to work ( probably MindOverMaster knows about the problem when he told me to bring a new PSU, I will get one later on)
What could be the problem?

Check your motherboard manual. It'll tell you what it means.

From what I looked up, it is a problem with your graphic card. Perhaps try a different card.

If I could find my mobo's manual
Okay, it beeped again only one short beep alone.
I opened it up to clean it, turned it on, nothing, black screen.
Tried again, it worked, but it gives OC Fail on a black screen with text. I don't do overclocking, what does OC fail mean?
If I skip that message by F1, I feel PC is lagging more than usually. Also, I think the GPU's fan is moving too slow.
Any ideas?

A single beep clarifies that POST has cleared its tests.

OC fail, even if you don't normally means that your BIOS was somehow reset.

Well, that message appears every time I turn on the PC " OC fail, please enter the bios to modify X " I don't remember what X meant, it was a message similar to that.
If I skip it, I find out the PC is lagging more than usual. Also, it seems both CPU and GPU fans are working so slowly. I think I need a reconstruct of my PC xD.

Did you ever try going into BIOS, and Just F10 to save settings? I've seen that happen before.

Okay, that worked and message doesn't appear again thanks. But still computer is laggish, is that due to the crappy PSU I have? I'm not sure if it's related to it or not and I'd like to know before I buy another PSU.

What temperatures are you getting? Your CPU can underperform when too hot. Get HWMonitor and show us a screenshot.

Okay it seems that the beeping is because of high temperature as my bios is set to warn me when temp reaches 60C, but when it beeped I opened realtemp and temperature was almost 70C on both cores on totally idle...
Here's a HWMonitor picture : Imageshack - tempp.png
