I am running Windows 10, and this beep does not come during BIOS but instead comes whenever I have intensive applications running on screen. For example, during normal web surfing such as watching Youtube videos, I do not get any long continuous beep. However, when I launch a game such as DoTA 2, the beep starts, and does not stop unless I close DoTA 2 or I Alt + Tab away. It is not an instantaneous stop of the beep but I notice the trend after testing again. Another thing that may be of note is that sometimes pausing and unpausing Youtube videos also seem to have the same stopping and starting of the same beep but I have not been able to confirm the trend. I am suspecting it is something with the CPU as I try to make use of the task manager and notice the rise and drop of CPU usage and not memory. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
