why noises from my motherboard?

I have an Intel DH55TC motherboard, with Windows 7 Home premium, and service pack 1. My motherboard emits infrequent beep noises, and random times. One single beep each time. Can anyone tell me what the beep noise means please?

Hello Noelmoyes, I would like to get some additional information about this behavior you are experiencing.

  • Which is the current BIOS version on your board?

  • When did you start getting this behavior?

  • Are you running the latest BIOS version available?

  • Was there any change on the system configuration?

  • Any program or update installed?

Regards

the bios number is TCIBX10H.96A.0043.2011.0112.1839

The noise started about a month ago, I am reluctant to attempt bios updates, system hasnt been changed or updated except antivirus updates, and regular microsoft updates. I noticed about a month ago that Windows could no longer carry out full backups, and eventually discovered that the second hard drive I use for backups has a fault. I tested with the Seagate HDD testing program and the drive fails. This could be the problem. The board is not beeping since I ran the Seagatetools program, which may be significant.

Noelmoyes, there are 4 BIOS that you may want to install on your system in order to find out if the beep sound disappears completely.

Please try installing these versions:
