Freeze up plus beep

  Scubaman 09:44 08 Jul 10

Hi Guys
I have just had my comp (XP Home SP3) freeze up after about 1.5 hours, with a continuous beep! Restart and all OK. This has happened twice over the past 2 months. I was running iTunes and a photo editing programe - Adobe Photo Shop Elements 6.0 this time, can't remember what was running the last time. Any ideas.

Google pc beep and beeps

Normally there are several beeps. Dunno about continuous.

But often it is memory (RAM) needs reseating.

Take anti-static precautions (lick your finger and touch a radiator). Wiggle your RAM out and replace it with a nice click.

Good luck.

Use Speedfan to check for overheating.

Vacuum out dust from fans etc

Finally cracked this one. After removing memory and PCI cards and giving the mobo and fans a good cleaning it still froze up. I have found that if I am running iTunes and my Adobe Photoshop 6 it freezes, so I don't run both at same time, sorted.
