If you have the user manual see if it lists the beep codes. These generally are error codes indicating that something has failed in the POST. Without the BIOS manufacturer and version I can't find any information on the error codes.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

How many beeps?

Not sure this is your BIOS, but take a look anyway (to get some ideas of how to troubleshoot your issue): http://www.gen-x-pc.com/beep_codes.htm
