I have a new computer, built by a guru. It's running windows 10. Every night at 12:15 AM, the computer starts beeping. First single beeps, getting faster until the beeping is continuous. The beeping lasts about 2 and a half minutes. It happens regardless of whether the computer is shut down or alive.

The guru does not know what is happening. He wants to take the computer back and do an extreme vetting, but is very busy at this time and doesn't know when he can get it.

I'm assuming that the beeping is not harming the software; AVAST has given the computer a clean bill of health.

Does anyone have any ideas of WTF is going on? Maybe the computer is sending messages to aliens or the NSA.

Have you updated to the newest BIOS? Would also recommend you run Malwarebytes (on a side note). Sounds like a motherboard issue although I havent heard of it before. I would have your GURU flash the BIOS for you.

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

If the computer is shut down, does it first power up and then start beeping or is it beeping while appearing to be fully shutoff?

Is the beeping the same loudness and pitch as any internal beeps that may occur during normal power up?

Are you 100% sure the beeping is coming from the computer case itself and not from a drawer or box very close to the computer? The beeping pattern you describe sounds like it could be the wake up alarm function of a digital watch or other electronic gadget that has an alarm clock function.
