Beeps while playing video games

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey, I just built a new computer with these:

Asus P5n32-E motherboard
Intel E6600 CPU
Evga 8800GTS 320MB

Acouple times while I was playing games I've heard beeps. First it was *beep* *beep*, then another time it was only one *beep*, and another time, *beep*...delay... *beep*. So I think they are single beeps.

I need to find out what the puter is trying to tell me.

I guessed that it may be coming from the video card, suspecting overheating so I downloaded NVIDIA monitor view program and found out my GPU was idling 65-70 Celsius (158*F) and it peaked at up to 75-78 Celsius. (172*F) but reading what other people say about their 8800 card is that it could withstand up to 100c and is made to run hot... 8-Z

Wondering if it could be the mobo I looked in the manual.... but it says "see beep code table below"... but the rest of the page is blank. Seriously.

I haven't changed any stock settings except correcting the stock RAM voltage.


Please. Help.

is the 78 at load or just the highest it got in windows? at those temps you may want to invest in a new video card cooler. as for the beeps you should look online at your motherboards latest manual. that should have the beep chart

your cpu will beep if you have hit the warning temp in your bios settings for your cpu. also in some games that i play mostly FPS. if you are hitting too many buttons at once the comp will let out a beep. maybe im way off base but check both these things and if it is your cpu temp getting warnings look into better cooling

The 8800 is around 65c when I boot it up. The highest I saw it go was like 78c.

The first time I tried to boot up the PC I didn't have the extra power cable in the graphics card. The machine SHRIEKED until I turned it off.

My CPU temp is about 115*F idle and 120*F+ when playing.
I'm not sure what my BIOS heat lvl is.

I'll try to find an updated manual for the mobo.

The beeps mean that it is overheating. If I overclocked mine too much, with out testing it, the screen would freeze, and if I clicked a few times it would beep, or if I just left it, it would take a while, then beep. I guess that since you have a faster card then me, the freeze isn't as much. Do you notice a Pause when your computer beeps? I have overclocked my XFX 6200 a lot, and I noticed that if I went into the nVidia Control Panel, and changed the Performance setting from Quality to Fast, the image barely changed, and the temperature dropped. Also, check and make sure that your fan is running at the Correct speed. Maybe SpeedFan would do the trick?

not to sound noob but you didn't press say up right down and left at same time do you during games ?

Or....or, just maybe, it means you are holding down a bunch of buttons at once
