When the system beeps, it is the motherboard informing you of an error. You need to figure out what motherboard that you have, and look up the error codes either in your manual, or find the manual online. My feeling though is that the errors indicate a hard drive failure. Hard to say though.

Is something wrong with your keyboard also? it appears that the caps-lock is stuck on. You might want to try a different keyboard and see if that helps, otherwise people will think you are yelling at them.
