Pc beeping for no reason whatsoever

My pc is beeping constantly lately for no reason... this just started last week. I can be on it or leave it idling and it beeps. This also isn't a soundcard beep, it's the pc speaker that beeping and it's driving me mad. Is there a way I can stop it from beeping short of unplugging it? It might be beeping for an alarm of some sort, but the temp. is around 35 so it would be a voltage issue. I don't any kind of motherboard monitor installed so I don't know if it's beeping for something related to that.

Any suggestions? I don't care for a fix, I just want the beeps to stop, I try to leave my pc on at night but now it's beeping and wakes me so I cant.

try to install motherboard monitor so that you can see what is going on. or boot into your bios and see if you can see any alarms or errors in your bios. if necessary leave it sitting in the bios for a bit until it starts to beep then look at your hardware monitors in the bios to see what is going on.

Pull the speaker cable off at night so you can sleep.

If you still hear beeps, check what alarm you have on your motherboard and chase it down with the manufacturer. In any case you might want to try leaving it in a non-booted-into-windows state (like at a safe mode menu or something) and see if it still beeps. That will tell you if it's BIOS or OS.

This reminds me of the imfamous beeping computer...it was an actual tech support call at Gateway, where I work. I client called in and the system was beeping about once every minute to two minutes...after 3-4 hours...yes 3-4 hours of teching and 1 tech and 2 seniors later a good friend and manager Andy came on (total 4 now) and it took him 1 minute to fix the problem...he simply stated..."madam, look above you do you have a smoke detector nearby? replace the 9 volt battery in it...it is beeping not the computer." that was so damn funny.

How often does it beep?? does the system beep with speakers unplugged? What type of system do you have?? A little more info please.

Thanks.
