Default weirdest alarm ive ever had

Have had some computer problems recently, mainly my motherboard sets off an audio alarm at random times. It doesn't give a post code or any sort of error and it just occurs at any time whether in windows or not, or turned on 10 hours ago or 2 minutes ago.

I hadn't been able to find any pattern until just now. I am reinstalling windows, and I get an error that some files are missing (because Im using winLite). If I leave one of these errors up for about 10 second without hitting OK, the alarm goes off. What's more, when I DO hit OK, the alarm stops.

I can't find anyone whose seen this problem before, and I am clueless where to start figuring out what hardware is messed up.

Can anyone please help???

Try using a full windows xp install cd instead of lite because the lite versions tend to have problems and see if the problem goes away
