    Is this a continuous beeping noise...? ...or does it start...and then stop...and then start again...?
    Does the problem start immediately after your operating system loads...? ...or only after going into certain applications / games...?

    The usual culprit is a stuck key...,but we'll see if we can figure it out.

    Sounds like your computer may be overheating. A lot of new computers have an option in the BIOS that monitors voltages and temperature as well as fan RPM. It may be that it's telling you to check the fans and temperature. Enter the BIOS( F1, DEL, F10 key during POST should get you into the BIOS) Try looking for power management, system monitor, something like that and see if there is an error or if any voltages are too high or low, or if the temperature is too high. Also take off the side and check all the fans in computer.
