Beeps during rendering process
by chipcain on Apr 1, 2004 at 6:11:07 pm
I am now trying to render my project using Vegas 4 and I get beeps and that was during a prerender for sampling in my media player. I was doing it on best auto. So I stopped it and moved it to draft and it still beeps but not near as often.
So any clues what I should be looking for? The beeps seem irregular so it's not a code for video card problems ect. When rendering, is the stress being put on the CPU, the video card or my memory? I am not sure what the problem is, I ran a system check and all checks out as ok.
My system is a AMD +2500XP (Barton Core)
512 (3200) DDR memeory
Video Card: ATI 5200se with 128mb.

Beeps WHILE rendering?
Beeps in the rendered output?
Running in Demo mode?

Sorry, good questions.
No not demo mode
No, not in the rendered output
Yep, random beeps during the renduring process.
Perhaps it's not a Vegas problem; after writing my original message my son & I played a game on our home network (Battlefield 1942 - Desert Combat) and I started to get the beeps as well. So If I have a question It is probably, how do I determine the cause? Video card? Ram? Or CPU, (parish the thought). I will search deeper at my end.

Could it be a high temp warning? Rendering (and playing games) causes the CPU to work extra hard causing an increase in heat output.

Well, that's one of the areas of concern I am now pursuing. Although, I think I am safe in that arena. But with computers you cannever be sure. I am now looking for a utility that will let me see the CPU temp while rendering/games ect.
