    Almost everytime I power on my system My MoBo emits this siren type noise. My MoBo is an ASUS P2B-D (Award Bios) With 256MB Ram PIII 500. I have tried the following:

    Reseated RAM & all Cards
    Changed RAM & all Cards
    Reset Bios Defaults
    Flashed Bios

    After switching it on and off a few dozen times it will bootup ok. I am quite happy to leave it running all the time but I am running a microsoft OS!!! Need i say more.

    Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Hi Rogue51

    Just a random thought. From what I have read most siren type noises have to do with over heat warnings possibly a fan doesn't have a temp sensor on it or isn't up to speed. I would look in Bios for something dealing with overheat sensing. BOL

    Your suggestion gave me something to think about, Turns out the PSU was faulty. Got a mate of mine to test it and one of the capacitors was on its way out. I have replaced the PSU and all is well now.

    Thanks again for the reply
