When I am playing games after awhile, anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes, my internal speaker starts to send out a continous beep and the power LED starts to flash. This problem seems to slow down everything on my computer. The funny thing is sometimes it doesn't happen and I can play forever without a problem. Have been trying to figure this out with no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you have a newer system with temperature monitoring in bios, you may want to check to see what the temps are when this occurs.
