    Quite interesting, as I occassionally have short "drumbeat" on the PC
    speaker. It is like \e[10;x]\e[11;15], but seems irreproducible to me with
    any particular x. I do not suspect overheating, as the BIOS hardware
    monitor has shown 51 deg Celsius after some hours running for over two
    years now.

    MB is EliteGroup L7S7A2, CPU is AMD Athlon XP 2000+, and
    /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ is empty. LM chip is a LM78, but lmsensors outputs
    only rubbish data.
