View Full Version : Why is my VT system beeping?

05-01-2009, 09:09 PM
My system is 4 years old and it recently started making a beeping sound. It only happens when I am working on a project (most of the time but not all of the time) and it comes and goes. Sometimes it gets really bad and beeps every few seconds. It also happens during rendering. When the system is on but not being touched, it's fine. What's wrong?

I had that happen when one of my power supplies was going bad. Heavier loads would make it happen more for some reason.
I think you have some hardware trying to tell you something.
Best of luck!

Another strong possibility is that it is warning you over overheating.

Steve is probably right, sounds like it's overheating. Check that your filters are clean on your cooling fans. Also check to make sure your cooling fan on top of your processor(s) are clean and free of dust.
