Do you have a virus?

There was a recent virus (netsky.d?) that sent out beeps from a activation date on.

Hi
My board is not the same as yours, but I had same thing, went into bios and disabled CPU smart FAN, you may have something in yours similar.

hm......actually the beep is just like the normal beeping sound from the motherboard....n it won't beep if you do nothing to the computer....but once you surf net / just do something using your computer, it'll beep once or twice or more....especially when i launch the FIFA game..the beeping is more frequent.....

If you have smart FAN or something like it, then it could be an audio signal that the CPU fan is changing speed, mine did exactly what you state, if I did nothing it would never happen but when the CPU was working then I got a bleep now and again, and this would happen all the time the computer was switched on, sometimes it took half hour before it did it, then other times it only took five mins before it started.

Just had the same problem. The fix is your power supply. This is a very common prob with the p4pe mobo also .
The sound you are hearing is a temp beep warning. As the voltage drops in your PS the current will go up , as the current increases so does your heat . check your supplies in the hardware monitor of your bios ( asus probe LIES ) . especially watch your 3.3v. If it is down around 3.0v . there is your problem . I had this issue after installing 128meg video card. I put in new supply, fixed. Oh by the way buy a GOOD power supply. regardless of rating, light is bad , heavy is good. I put in an enermax 465watt supply with dual fans, problems gone , 3.3 is now 3.31.

P.S. only beeped on mine when in 3D mode. games etc

good luck
