Hi, I just recently purchased this i7 build, but when I start it up, and play any sound or audio or even flash, the system makes a beeeeeeep noise, a long continuous beep until you close/stop the audio/flash.

I am using Windows Vista Ultimate x64, and my build is as follows:

CPU: i7 920
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P
RAM: Kingston 6GB 1333mhz
PSU: Antec Truepower Quattro 850W
Case: Antec Nine Hundred Two
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 275 (UD)
Drives: Pioneer 217BK DVD Drive
Pioneer Blu-ray Combo Drive
Wireless Card: TP-Link WN-851N PCI Card
HDD: Seagate 7200.11 1TB 7200RPM
Card Reader: Sony Card Reader

Also, there is an unknown driver in Device Manager, if anyone knows how to solve this let me know. All the information I have on it is "on Intel(R) ICH10R LPC Interface Controller - 3A16".

Please help me! This sound is getting annoying.

where is this beep coming from? Speaker? board?

I think its coming from the internal speaker on my motherboard. I'm not absolutely sure but.

It's quite hard to determine where the beep is coming from as you hear it all around.

Unplug your speakers then. Sounds to me like you may have a conflict. Have you completely updated everything for your motherboard?

Sorry, unplugging my speakers still leave me with that sound.

Yea, I've updated everything for my motherboard EXCEPT for my LAN driver, every time i update this driver, it seems that my motherboard makes a beep everytime the LAN port is used, so I'm guessing the Audio and LAN are interrelated by using the same chip or something.

I also haven't updated my Graphics card to its latest drivers because everytime i do so, my desktop shrinks down. Auto Adjustment is not avaliable and everything looks funny when I change the resolution.

However, I have all the latest working drivers for my system.

Any other suggestions?
