PC Boot correct but continous beep

Specs: Windows XP Home Edition
Hi there tech supporters ;-), I'm having a problem. I have an Gigabyte 81865GME. Intel Pentium 4 Model.

The pc boot correct, bios works fine. But i was like 2 days ago in the computing. OS Windows XP, and suddenly it began a continuous beep.

I turned off my pc and restart it. Worked fine, then about a couple of hours. It began the continuous beep again. But this time, keep making the noise every time i use my computer. And still load BIOs and OS fine.

So i decided to open my pc case, and found that the CPU Heatstink was very full of dust, i could not see through it. So i tried to remove the CPU Fan but it was too tricky and no space to do so, so removed the Heatsink and CPU Fan. Now when PC reaches 60 degrees, make the continous beep.

So i'm wondering, when I used my pc, it maybe began to make the continuous beep because of temperature warning.

So when I apply the Thermal Grease it should stay below 60o right and no sound?

Cuz when I boot to BIOS have no warning beeps, rapidly i go to PC Health Status and the CPU Temperature keep blowing up 1 per second.

Any advise?

Well try cleaning up the Tower and try defrag also because the computer is like that because of insufficient memory. Try also upgrading the ram. See if it solve the problem

I don't see how adding more RAM is going to do anything for overheating which it is obviously what this problem is indicated the the continuous beeps.

60C is a little on the hot side. There should be a setting in the BIOS ere you can set the warning level. 60C is a good level so I wouldn't alter it.

When you removed the heat-sink you need to replace the Thermal Grease after first removing all traces of the old grease. Only use a very small amount, just enough to cover the central core of the CPU with the thinnest layer. To much can be almost as bad as to little.

while you are at it give the heat-sink and fan a good clean to get rid of the accumulated junk.

Ok Thanks for your support. I applied Thermal Compund and my Temperature is doing 51c to 54C, i discovered that the Heatsink connector in the motherboard are broken, you know is 4, i'm using two because 2 of them are brokem so i had to make some pression on it to lower computer temperature.

Thanks for the advice, and the RAM has nothing to do cuz i Have 1 GB but thank you guys.
