Computer beeps multiple times in rapid succession

I have searched for similar threads and didn't find any answers so i need some help from you guys. Whenever I power on my computer it immediatly beeps about 20 times very rapidly, it boots fine and runs fine but every few minutes it does the same beep pattern. I tried looking at the beep codes but couldn't find any that were that high of a number. I was starting to think that it might be some sort of power problem, like the motherboard battery but I don't know. Any help is appreciated.

  1. Most of the time it means a bad/failing PSU sometimes a loose PCI card or short. My experience it's your PSU needs to be replaced. Replace your CMOS battery just in case.
  2. Cool, thanks for the response. I will try CMOS first to make sure thats not the issue and if that doesn't fix it I will replace the PSU.
  3. Apparently it was a Windows 7 update, I was ready to do the deed but I booted it one more time and it had an update, now there is no beeping, everything is fine. That is the only explanation that makes sense right now.
