    Exclamation crashes

    Recently my computer has been occasionally locking up and starts to loop whatever sound that was playing. forcing me to manually reboot. and today after playing tf2 the same thing happened, computer froze and sound is looped. However after rebooting, just before the windows logo is displayed my computer starts beeping repeatedly. now i can't even boot my computer because it just hangs and starts beeping. Although i can enter the bios. It seems most of my trouble started about a month ago when i got a new xfi sound blaster fatality. soon after my computer started crashing and looping sound. Most of the time during games so i figured that there was a problem with the sound card. so i uninstalled it and removed it; however, my computer continued to randomly lock up. Even when just browsing the web or doing something that had low utilization.

    so does anyone have any suggestions to fix my problem?
    what does the beeping mean? i know there are post beeps but i don't see any that are similar to the beeps i get. they are high and fast continuous beeps. roughly 5 or more beeps per second.

    thanks for the help!

    so i've figured out why it was beeping. for some reason the boot sequence was setup to run off of a usb over the hdd. however i still don't know why it's locking up

    PC specs would be handy. :)

    Does the problem persist if you remove the sound card from the equation?

    Refer to m/board manual for beep codes meanings.

    it could also be a heat issue - try using a desk fan to blow in the side and see if that helps

    Hi Teh cookie,
    as Kheldar said before it can be a heat issue , but hav eyou though about checking if maybe its a software problem?
    try searching in the event viewer or try to boot into safe mode and play with small things and see what is going on .

    maybe your problem is even a software problem.
