When is it beeping? Right after you turn it on? During normal usage? How often is it beeping? Does it stop when you turn off the system volume? –  slhck May 2 '12 at 14:51
    
The beeping could be a warning of overheating. Does this happen during times of heavy usage? You may want to investigate smcFanControl. –  user3463 May 2 '12 at 17:23
    
slhck - It beeps during regular use. I will have to check if it stops while having the speakers volume off, but I am under the impression that the sound is internal and not from the speakers. Randolph West - checking on smcFanControl right away. –  orlando lopez d. May 7 '12 at 23:24
