Help with current x4 955 build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so I've had this PC setup since around July of last year, but I have just now been experiencing some weird things with it.

Basically this is what happens, If I start playing a game(not starting the game, but actually getting into the graphical part of it), my computer will emit LONG, STEADY beeps. Here are my current specs:

MSI 790fx-GD70 Mobo
AMD Phenom ii x4 955 Proc (H50 water cooler)
OCZ AMD Black Edition 1600 mhz ram (8-8-8-24)
GTX 560 Ti MSI Twin Frozr II
GTS 250 1 GB BFG (as physx)
Corsair HX750w PSU

Before you go and post "you need a better power supply", this problem has been occuring before I bought the GTX 560, and used only the 250. I have tried playing games at my regular CPU clock of 3.8 GHz w/ RAM at 1600 mhz, and at stock settings of 3.2 GHz and 1066 RAM(which is default for mobo, not the ram modules itself).

Any kind of help/suggestions would be appreciated, and if I posted this in the wrong section I'm very sorry, because I am quite new to this forum.

have you tried doing a cmos reset? Have you checked your temps to make sure they aren't going up and setting off an alarm?

Your AMD chipset just killed the 2 Nvidia Card in an endless struggle!

Try playing all of your games with all of your components at stock clocks. If the beeping stops then either your cards or cpu was overheating.

Ok I tried with everything at stock and I'm still getting the problem. GPU temps and CPU temps are all perfectly normal.

Check for things such as CPU fan whether they are plugged in or not, the motherboard may emit a warning if this is not plugged in but this can be turned off in BIOS

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply guys, but when I pressed the Clear CMOS button on my motherboard(PC was off), when I tried to turn my PC back on, it is giving me a post code on the LCD post screen that the CPU failed to initialize? How is it possible that clearing the cmos could affect my CPU?
