Hi!

I've got a macbook pro which I'm using an external audio interface with x2 studio monitors, I'm also monitoring my mac to a screen with the HDMI mac converter. The beeping noise stops when I plug the HDMI converter out, but i would very much want to monitor my mac on a big screen and be able to listen trhough my monitors without this terrible beeping noise :)

Does the beeping increase/decrease as you change the volume through your Mac?

i have an external audio interface so i can only turn up the volume from there. The beeping does however not increase if i turn it up, though if i turn the volume on the monitor it increases...

Just because you have an external audio interface doesn't mean your internal interface is disabled. Go to System Preferences > Sound >
Output > Internal Speakers. After selecting the internal speakers adjust the output volume to 0 and then switch to back top your external interface.

There could be an app somewhere still registered to use the internal card, a lot of DAW's manually control which card to use for whatever purpose you see fit.

Did not work :/ i turned down the internal volume to 0 and then restarted my external audio interface and it still beeps :/
