At first I thought it was time to change the batteries in the fire alarm.
But the single loud BEEP came from my computer. What does this mean? The
computer seems to work very well otherwise. It happens while I'm working,
NOT during power up.

p.s. make sure your ram is seated properly. I seem to remember getting
random beeps and it was because one of my sticks of ram wasn't quite seated
all the way in - it still worked but with errors.

It could be that one of the voltages either dropped or exceeded its
threshold briefly or it could be that one of your fans went below its rpm
minimum setting in the bios if you are using a mb with fan rpm control. You
should be able to turn this warning beep off for the fans. To check for
voltage then get Motherboard Monitor software and monitor the voltages and
see if this beep happens when you get a voltage drop on one of the rails. If
you do then get a better power supply.
