Unhappy Continuous beeping of FX5950 Ultra


I've got a GeForce FX5950 Ultra and since a couple of weeks the card itself has been starting to beep continuously. The beeping starts random, but once it starts, it doesn't stop. At the same time I've been having random bluescreens in winxp. The beeping also occurs under Debian.
It doesn't seem to matter either if the card is under stress (eg. realtime 3D rendering) or just displaying the desktop.

A friend of mine says it's the actual ram on the card which is making the beeping noise, but I just don't buy that. I am very sure the beeping is not from some other card/component in my case. I've tried various older drivers to no avail.

Has anyone ever have this too? If so, what was it and how did you fix it?
The beeping is driving me mad, and it's pretty damn irritating, besides the obvious fact that this card which I paid dearly for seems to be broken, just 2 weeks after it's guarantee ran out.

Suggestions are welcome...

Some technical details:
* WinXp (latest drivers) / Debian (latest drivers)
* 1Gb internal RAM
* Gigabyte motherboard
* Dualscreen setup (1280*1024 both screens)
* 450W PSU
I Code In Peace!
