Windows 7: Windows Media Player beeps while playing movies

Windows Media Player beeps while playing movies

I usually watch my AVI, MP4 files on Windows Media Player. I think something may have been clicked on the codec or something and now while watching a movie, every few seconds the audio on the video cuts out and makes a small beep, then cuts back to the movie's audio. Any idea how to fix this?

Here are few things you can check:

1) Latest audio/video drivers

2) Sometime there is beep due to temp sensor warning. Check your Temp.

3) It "maybe" a PSU issue. Install this bit of software and check your temps and voltages.

It played one video fine, I clicked the next video, and the beeping started. Also, it doesn't do this in any other media player. i even tried uninstalling WMP and all my codecs, restarting, and reinstalling.. same problem.
