    Hi Thanks for reply..The PC is an Acer Sa90 Aspire Desktop..OS=XP SP3 and CPU = Intel dual core 4400.....The beeps happen irregularly with no apparant time pattern...I do get a lot of the Outlook Express Compact folder panel asppearing all the time..Whether the two are connected I do not know...I thought it might be a memory issue?? I have a 512mb stick in each of two slots....and I really wonder if I should try the max I can as I have been told the memory I have is inadequate..
    I do turn the PC off when the beeps happen....HK

    1Gb og memory should be fine on XP - have a look at task manager and see how much memory you are actually use (commited memory)

    it maybe a virus of some description on the PC - i dont know what it is
