Halt w/ BEEP~~~ sound...

um... i really don't know what's wrong..
but whenever i run WoW or 3D game, my computer makes a beep sound and halts. i thought it was my VGA card since it gave me more than 100deg C.
so... i rma'ed the videocard.
while it is in rma, i got another cheap vga card w/out fan.
this vga card only has a heatsink; it has no temperature gauge.
is this another vga problem?
or this LOUD LONG BEEP sound possibly come from another source than vga over heating??
plz help me out...
thank you

  1. It could be something else overheating - what are your system specs? CPU Temps both idle and under load? Voltages? Need a lot more information before hazarding anything more than a wild guess.

    Mike.
  2. spec:
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ running 50C load/ 35C idle
    ASUS A8V Deluxe temp 24C
    Corsair XMS DDR 3200-1024C2PT
    Geforce 6800 GT
    Creative X-fi Professional
    5HDDs 2SATA + 3PATA
    DVD+-RW DL, CDRW

    voltage of cpu is auto since i run cool & quiet

    And all that is powered by a wak 350w psu?
  4. oh sorry my psu is
    Seasonic S12 600W PSU
  5. i dont think a video card problem, i think its a heat issue.

    if it was a video card issue it would/should not want to even turn on or beep on turn on.

    Is the beep of a high frequency (really high pitched or reslly loud) if so its due to your cpu overheating. Try playing a game with your cases side panel off and also clean out all dust and hair that might be in the case/fans/heatsink.
