I guess this a similar question to this thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=65538), but thought I'd ask seperately.

Basically when I hold down keys such as up, left and another character, the BIOS beeps. It's apparent in driving games, and the car doesn't turn left when doing that, which is annoying! Up, right and another character works though... :confused:

Any ideas?

Tried changing your keyboard? Sometimes dodgy keyboards can cause problems like that, however the error *beeps* would be outputted via the sound card, not from the PC Speaker connected directly to the motherboard if it caused by application error.
Also are you using a USB or PS/2 keyboard?

It's just a standard PS/2 keyboard, and it's the motherboard speaker beeping. Weird though coz it only happens when using the left key and two other keys lol, doesn't worry me too much really though because I rarely play games, but the times I do, it's a bit of a pain!

Just realised it does it outside of games too...
