someone told me i need to change the settings so the alarm doesnt go off from overheating.
If your BIOS alarm is going off because of over heating then you need to look into why your over heating. That is unless the BIOS over heat warning is set too low for your CPU and other specs.
Maybe a bad RAM stick? That was the cause of my old HP beeping on startup.
my temps were like 35 55 65 40 or something. 2 high, 2 normal i think
3814rpm for 1 fan and 0rpm for another fan.
is there a way to just mute the computer tower?
if there's no option in the bios to disable the alarm, you could always disconnect the speaker from the motherboard.
or, in xp goto device manager select view and click "show hidden devices",
then if you see "non-plug and play drivers" expand it and go to the
properties of 'beep'. under the driver tab click stop and change the
startup type to 'disabled'.
