Geforce 8800GTX/Geforce 8800GTS beeps while shutting down PC

Updated 05/09/2007 04:30 PM

When I shutdown my PC, my Geforce 8800GTS/GTX starts beeping.  How do I fix this?

The Geforce 8800 family uses a internal hardware power sensing technology which will warn the user if the Geforce 8800GTS/GTX graphics card is not receiving sufficient external power from the PC power supply.  In some cases, a power supply may cut off power to the graphics card before the PC shuts down resulting in a short beeping sound from the graphics card.  The power sensing technology is designed to ensure a graphics card receives sufficient power to prevent possible damage to the graphics card and therefore can not be disabled.
