BIOS speaker is broken, and you hear high pitched beeps? Hmmmmm,..........
CPU temperature in normal............ What is the CPU, and what is the temp? Hey, I gotta know so we are on the same page here, lol!
Me? Those repeated high pitch BIOS Beep Codes indicate a CPU problem. I would remove the Heatsink/Fan combo, and replace the Thermal Paste. (Following Anti-Static Precautions, and cleaning the CPU, and Heatsink, of course)
Also make sure the Heatsink is sitting flat. Yes, I know what you stated about Speecy, and Core Temp, but I would try it anyway.
Still no? CPU is sounding Taps, and telling you goodbye.
First check if the monitor is functional by removing the monitor cable connected to the CPU, once disconnected you should see a onscreen display on the monitor (Keep the power cable intact).
Second check if the CPU is working (not stuck / hung) if you hear the windows logging on sound, then your CPU is fine. If you do not have sound enabled during startup or no speakers then once the system is on give it some time to load windows and then keep tapping the Caps lock or the num lock key, if the lights respond / glow on and off when you press the keys then the CPU is working.
Third check if the CPU has two display ports (in case if you have a onboard VGA and a seperate video card) disconnect it from one port and insert it in another port and restart the computer and see it it works. If you do not have two video ports then skip this step.
Fourth - Restart the computer and keep tapping F8 Key while restarting, in the windows advanced menu choose enable VGA mode or Low resolution video mode (based on XP or Vista/Win 7 the menu changes), if you can see that menu then the issue is with the display settings only. Once in VGA mode or low resolution mode reduce the video resolution settings and restart the computer.
Please revert if you need further assistance, or clarification.

There are a number of issues might be affecting your PC's performance,
some are dangerous while others not that serious. Learn why and how you
can speed it up easily from: http://www.whyismypcsoslow.net/
if your system go slow as well as hangs while playing the games only you can get the external video card for the computer because the integrated video card's graphics resolution is not high & the games demands more...
Do you still have your manual? If not download it from Gigabyte at this link:http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2637 Enter your bios & open manual to page 51, "PC Health Status". Here you can monitor the CPU temp, system temp & CPU fan speed. Notice the manual shows the example of system temp to be 30degs C & current CPU Temperature is at 47degs C. One would think these temps are reasonable. My CPU fan runs between 3308Rpm & 3341Rpm. CPU @ 41deg C & MB @ 31deg C. AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ 2.21 GHz. Suggest you try this. If your running Win XP. Open system properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the settings button under Startup and Recovery. Remove the check mark to the left of, Automatically restart. Windows should provide an error message if & when the system freezes. This will help in finding what is causing the system to freeze. If your CPU fan is running under 3000Rpm you might consider buying a faster fan or add a case fan to the side of the case to help bring in fresh air to blow onto the CPU fan & PCI-Express card. Here is a decent lace to look for case fans: http://www.xoxide.com/casefans.html
To reformat & install Windows do this.
