Windows 7: Single Random Beep

04 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Single Random Beep

hello all :)

i have a new build it is up and running fine except i get these random beeps coming from inside the case, i think it's the internal system speaker..

it will beep like once now then again randomly in 30mins then again in 2hours etc

my temperatures are normal so it's not a overheating problem

here is my temp results -

disabling beep in device manger doesn't fix it either.

i ran prime95 and the highest temp was 65 and my alarm was set to 80 so it's not that

i also tried changing memory voltage from 1.5 to 1.65 didnt work either

is it true i must do this? i dont see it working though because it's just power saving features

you must disable Intel turbo,C1E,C3/C6,EIST,C.I.A.

My Build is

Intel i5-750
4GB Kingston Ram
Gigabyte p55a-udr3 motherboard
WD velociraptor
WD caviar black
nvidia g240 graphics card
LG blue ray combo drive
coolermaster CM 900 advanced case with the 3 stock fans
silverstone strider 500watt PSU
Windows 7 Ultimate (32-Bit)

Bios F6, tried to update to F8 but when i try to install it says ntvdm.exe has stopped working and troubleshoot doesnt fix it

i would only have running say firefox, msn and some music :|

waiting on reply from gigabyte tech support

I booted up my PC recently and it made 2 fast beeps. Now whenever I boot it up, there arent any beeps at all, but there is supposed to be just one. I looked up what 2 beeps means, and it means "Parity error - bad memory". So what exactly does that mean? And what should I do? I tried to test all...
