did have a quick look through forums nothing seems to be exactly like this.

It's more of a 'blip' than a 'beep'. shorter than the standard beep when the computer starts.

Randomly, it seems, when im already started up using windows and the computers behaved so far, it will either:
make one single blip from the tower, and the little red light will start flashing and it will freeze for about 10 seconds until the light rrturns to normal. its doing it now.
continuously blip in rhythm, the flashing light with the blips, and freeze for anywhere up to a few minutes, then returns to normal.
blip in no particular pattern, go a little mental, light and all, freeze and i generally restart the computer once i get bored which is at about 5 minutes.twice when its done this, it hasnt read the hard drive on start up and therefore cant boot. after a lot of swearing and some luck, it starts up and does read it.

when i say 'freeze' it first freezes the screen - the mouse still rolls around but in an hourglass and it doesnt register any button clicks until after the freeze, as if its just running ridiculously slowly - then it will completely freeze, and the mouse wont even move.

anti-virus and anto-rootkit scan came up clean, though im assuming this is something to do with the hardware since the sound is coming from the tower itself. Ive defraged the hard drives, which needed doing anyway. Its a massive annoyance and i dont know if it means part of the hardware is dying, in which case i'd really like to know in advance given how much i rely on this computer.

Does anyone speak in bleep?
any suggestions are appreciated.
