Beeping right after power on, wtf?
I'm home visiting my father, and I turned on his PC (which he SELDOM uses) to see how it was doing (I'm currently on my laptop), and it ran for about 15 minutes, and then it completely froze, no mouse response, couldn't even CTRL+ALT+DEL out. So I soft booted it, and upon restarting, the computer started emitting this HEINOUS beeping sound immediately upon powering up (well, maybe after about 1-2 seconds). At first, it was just one long solid beep, like "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep" until I shut it down. After a couple restarts, it now just beeps on and off, in a steady rhythm. It's a little bit slower than 1 beep per second. One been on per second, and one beep off per second. System specs are as follows:
AMD Athlon 2200+
1 GB Ram (single stick)
2 HDs (80 GB, 60GB)
Ti4600 vid card
Soundblasket Audigy Platinum sound card
