I have a Pionex computer with Windows 98... Yeah, I know it should be trashed, but it is all I have at the moment. My computer made this terrible car alarm sound about two months ago and did not do it again until this weekend. Today, it has done it about every 45 minutes to an hour. It seems to only do this when I'm on the internet. However it did it when my son was playing a Jumpstart game this weekend.
What the heck is going on?

Howdy BizeeB...

Not familiar with Pionex pc's, but it sounds like it could be giving a warning that it could be over heating, check to make sure that all the fans are in working order ( espicially the CPU fan ), and if you see a lot of dust, clean it out, that will also cause overheating...

Also you may want to check all the connections, and make sure that they are connected good...

Okay, I found it. My son has removed the dust and so far no crazy noises. Time will tell, or maybe someone with the same problem will let me know.

If it happens again, check the processor fan. If the bearings are burnt you need to replace it quickly.

Dia I think they are talking about the alarm, not the beep codes. Beep codes don't happen after the computer boots up ;)

Thanks for the reply's. I will have my husband check the processor fan tonight. If the bearings are bad, what can we expect to pay to replace it. The $499.00 dell is looking good right now. LOL
