Re: hp a1230n heating
Robert, I recommend you to open the chassis cover and check if there is any obstruction of any air vent. Meanwhile, if you can hear a loud fan spinning of the CPU heatsink, you might have to replace the thermal paste, the instruction http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/134.
If the problem still persist, don forget to come back here. I will try my best to help you.

It seems that your system is overheating so follow these instructions first - Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor - Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals - Use High Speed fans - Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor - Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan - Shut down your computer atleast two hour a day If you are unable to perform above tasks then use a single utility tool like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of overheating
If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.
Almost certainly an overheating problem.
Speed Fan will provide a temperature monitoring solution if you don't have one built-in:
This program will also give you S.M.A.R.T. info.
Open the case and look for dust bunnies, especially in the heat sink and fan areas.
