Depending on your BIOS, this site should tell you what the "beep" code means:

Constant beeps usually mean a memory problem, although it could be a motherboard problem and its giving a false code. What kind of computer is it?

Ok all, A stick of memory was bad. Computer now boots up but another problem, the screensaver has a password in order to access the computer. Is there anyway to bypass/find out the password? And thanks to all.

Per the BleepingComputer's Message Board Rules:

I suggest you ask the neighbor, that gave you the computer.
