Default Computer randomly beeping at me?

So I turn on my computer today, and all throughout the day it has been randomly "beeping" at me, just one single beep from the PC speaker (although I dont recall hooking it up even). Where do I disable this annoying beep at?

It does it while it is still running??? Could be the temp sensor telling the motherboard it's running to hot, and is sending out a warning message?

I'm not sure, today is a particulary cool day and I do have a big heatsink / fan combo. Yes it does it while it's running, one beep every so often like 15 minutes or so...

Sounds like a heat problem. Run SpeedFan or PCWizard and post your temps.

Replace Speefan with Coretemp. Speefan is never accurate for me...heard that from other people too.
