    System goes BEEP whenever I start my system but goes away in like 2 sec..

    Well, might as well fire up a question as this little bit is making my mind go nuts..

    Okay, I recently swapped my GFX card to an Abit AX8 v. 2.0 for work reasons,

    Its a 3200+ Venice E6 @ 2.4Ghz
    Abit AX8 v. 2.0
    4x512MB ram
    and 2x160GB of HDD

    All running happily on a 530W Tagan Easycon using a 7800GT..

    Then when I dropped my X1800XT 512MB to this board.. the system starts up..then gets this over the head noise like 'beeep *high* beeeep *low*...' for like 2 seconds. It does it everytime.. everytime I restart, reboot... it makes this very very annoying post beep. Wasnt happening on my 7800GT..

    So I thought it was a power problem, dropped my overclock to stock 2.0Ghz.. ripped out 2 sticks of ram, booted with only 1 drive, and still Im getting that beep..

    Any ideas?

    The X1800XT was previously from another system, running the same model PSU, and I wasnt getting beeps..

    EDIT: also, the system works fine the rest of the time.. no crashes or anything, prime stable.. 3Dmark stable.. Just beeping everytime I restart..

    I had this before. It was my CPU fan spinning too slowly on start up, thus the warning alarm was kicking in. Of course, after a second or so, its at full, so the warning stopped.

    Go into the uGuru page and check which events have the "beep" warning next to them.

    Starnge its only started happening with changing of g.cards though. Could be somthing else :\
