Since a new processor was installed the computer beeps constantly. I want to know how to turn off the internal speaker but can't find any way to do this in Windows. Any ideas?

Open your case in you will see wires coming from the front and connecting to small pins on the front corner of the mother board find the one that says speaker and dissconnect it.

You might go into the CMOS and check the alarms. I had that problem and it was because I had a cheap fan on my cpu and the main board could not monitor it.

Thanks Tom. Someone else suggested a similar answer to the problem so I suspect we're on the right lines. The problem is that I've been into the BIOS and CMOS but can't see anything to do with "alarms". I've tried to disable the temperature monitors but this doesn't make any difference. Any ideas?
