May not track the problem down specificly but if it is the pc speaker then the following should disable it and stop the noise being produced. If it is the PC speaker and there is a soundcard installed a beep like this usually means that something is sending a random code that is being interpreted by the BIOS itself and creating the beep.
Disable Internal Speaker

I think you may have pointed me in the right direction Cache. I cannot believe that I didn't think of looking there! Anyway, there are hundreds of jobs scheduled to run every day on the hour. It appears that the beep is caused when processes cannot start or are already runnning. I just need to track down what put them there in the first place now. We have had a Conficker infection in recent months, so it may be down to this. I'll do some digging and post the results back up here.

It looks as though it's a remnant of the Conficker virus as discussed in this post.
Joy of joys, more clean up work to do!
