I have a problem when using my computer. About every 10 minutes it locks up for approx 1.5 minutes while giving out a two tone tune similar to an ambulance. After the 1.5 minutes it carries on as normal axcept when you are on the internet and it just drops the connection while doing the above. Help !!!!!!!!!

Check your systems manual for tone identification. There maybe a hardware problem that doesn't come up when you first switch on the computer but comes up later on.Most systems have these 'beeps' as warnings.

It suond as though it may be the BIOS alarm, which could be any number of things including overheateating, possible devise, or component failure etc. suggest usng the DR Watson facility, which when set will log possible causes. This is able to be accessed through the System tools folder> System information>Tools>Dr Watson
