Why is my computer making noise when I play video games?

Question

My question is...

While I play some of the new games that are out today, my computer continues to make noise that comes from the tower. All computer can create sounds that are small beeps and my computer makes that sound, but only while playing some games. And depending on the games sometimes the beeps are constant and can become very anoyying. How can I either turn off these sounds or better yet fix whatever problem that could be causing all the noise?

Thanx James

1 Check your "volume control" found in "control panel"

2 Play with the "aux" control and see if that helps.

3 Uncheck ALL not being used.

Your systems video card may not be able to sustain new game textures, resolutions etc...

Does your computer make similar noise with older games? If so, think about getting a new sound card.
