Question Never-Ending POST Beeps from Asus P6T Deluxe

The issue:
  • Continuous short beeps (short beeps that NEVER STOP repeating)
  • The beeps start immediately after pressing the computer power button
  • The motherboard has onboard power and reset buttons with indicator lights that flash repeatedly after the power supply is switched off
The computer has worked perfectly for years, and I haven't made any changes to it.

Everything is working normally otherwise:
  • Nothing unusual on screen during POST or boot
  • Boots OK
  • Video OK
  • Programs load
  • Windows system information shows all RAM
The only noticeable problem is the beeping--it's so loud that the computer is now practically unusable.

There are two BIOS programs--first a Marvell, then an AMI--and I haven't found anything useful in either for solving the problem.

None of the beep codes that I've seen have a "continuous short beeps" listing.

My questions are:
  • Given that everything appears to be working (except for the beeps), how can I fix the beeping issue?
  • Is there a way to just turn the beeps off? (I've seen no option for this in BIOS or in the manual)
Edit:

Some people are suggesting that the CPU temperature could be the cause of the beeping. The beeps begin the moment that I press the power button--while my finger is still on the button.

Could the CPU reach critical temps instantly in a cold room?

could be sensor failure
see your bios settings, try disable temperature protection/fan monitoring if it stops beeping
if it does..hmmm its not advised to keep that disabled
if temperatures/fan speed detection looks all fine, then its better to just disconnect pc speaker
