My computer of about 3 years has recently started having major performance problems, and freezing. It was broken for about 5 Months until windows was repaired, Then it ran fine for a couple of weeks until yesterday when the freezing started. The case sits open on my desk so i reached in and the Motherboard heatsink and graphics card were extremely hot, while the hardrive was at normal operating temperature. Now when i reboot it I get some beeping. It starts with a more pronounced beep then continues on to 60-8 short beeps. After the short beeps stop there is about a one second pause then the cycle restarts.
Asus P5B-E Motherboard
XFX GeForce 7900 GS graphics card.
