    Alright here is the story. I got myself a new computer for Christmas and the problem that I am having is that whenever I go to play a game I great sound from my 5.1 speakers BUT my case speaker beeps constantly. The beeps are not in any particular order or pattern. So far this has only happened when I try and play games, it does not happen with DVD's or CD's or general computer usuage only when I play games.

    Here is my hardware in case it will help someone out there figure out what the problem is.

    ASUS P4PE/R/L/SATA motherboard
    Pentium 4 2.4
    Sony DRU500A DVD
    Audiogy 2 sound card
    Geforce 4 ti4600 video card
    512MB PC2700 DDR ram
    Windows XP Pro

    The games that I am having this happen on are: Serious Sam and Medal of Honor Allied Assualt. (which are the only two games I have installed right now)

    This is the first time that I have built my own computer and everything but this is working great. Can someone out there PLEASE help I am going crazy over this. It is now four in the morning and I am giving up for the night, hopefully when I check back in the morning someone out there will have some idea of what the problem is.

    Thanks,

    Well I got the problem figured out you guys sure were a big help [​IMG]
    Just in case anyone else ever has this problem here is what was wrong.
    It ended up being my power supply. I guess the one that I originally got (Raidmax 400W) wasn't stable enough so I replaced it with an Antec 400W and the problem went away. I found out about this through the ASUS forums.
    /me does a happy dance.

    Lucky you found the problem: I was gonna suggest cutting the wires going to the PC speaker. [​IMG]
    Last week I put together my newest PC: an Intel MB & P4 2.4G in a new case: only there is no place to plug in the case speaker! Finally I read in the fine print: a speaker is built into the Intel MB.
