One of the most addictive web-based game

www.goldentowns.com

Playing this web game which claims that the in-game gold is backed by real gold. Quite a vibrant community out there. Seems like the whole bitcoin thingie is spreading to the online gaming world. They are coming up with their own crypto-currency as well. Look for me, i am cccp1979lcw inside!

anyway it wasnt my pc, it was my teacher's.....he is going for a RAM change and i hope that will solve the problem.

can the symptoms mark the presence of a virus ?

Most unlikely that the beeps will have anything to do with a virus. Nevertheless, a virus is often on a computer...
