Specs: Windows 7
My computer will suddenly make a numerous amounts loud beeps and then my screen will go black. If I do a hard shut down, then reboot. Everything is fine, then after a while, the same thing happens. I did a system check and everything is O.K. I hear the fans going and the light on my monitor goes a red color as if it isnt responding. Also it happened about 2 weeks ago then just stopped and now its started doing it again.

Without any system information we can only guess. Post the model of the computer or if a custom build, the hardware specs.

Also tell us what you were doing on the computer when this happens.

Lastly, post the number and sequence of those loud beeps.

It will happen a few minutes after i start playing a game (Guild Wars 2). For the beep frequency im not sure how to tell but i would feel like it would be 1 or 2 a second for about 10 to 25 seconds then silence

Sounds like overheating. Install CPUID and monitor in real time.
