Mandrake 9.2 beeps then slooooowwwwss

OK I am newbie trying to figure out how to run linux and I have been making progress however lately mandrake will eventually Beep (hard to describe) and then slow almost to a stop. It take a good 30 seconds to reach k menu from there to shutdown and restart. It is fine for about 10 minutes and then this happens. Any suggestiong?

Sounds like your PC is overheating and automatically slowing the CPU down to prevent damage.

I'd check your CPU heatsink and fan if I were you...
