Do you have the model number for the PC?

My first guess with a continious beep is that it sounds like a memory issue, try removing the sticks of RAM, make sure the slots are clean (dust etc) and then stick them back in, post back any results.

^ beep codes

To add to Emu's i think he's probably right, If you have more than 1 stick you should also try booting with each stick in different slots, one of your RAM sticks or DIMM slots might have went out.

Unfortunately that picture doesn't tell me what model that is. If I'm going to search for the manual for that computer and look up the beep codes for you I will need that information. The model should be on the front of the computer.

As for it being RAM, that's a possibility guys, but without the model and looking up the codes it could well be the graphics card. The RAM code is just one of the more common ones, but that doesn't preclude it being anything else.

All it has on the front is hp pavilion windows xp media center edition 2005

If you download SIW and go to the hardware section, click on BIOS it will tell the manufacturer and version of your BIOS. With that you will be able to use the link that smufgod provided.
