Welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

There are lots of people here that are willing to help.

More details please. What is the make/model of your computer? Anything identifying the computer will help us. (minus the license #)
What OS are you using -(XP, 2000, ME, 98, NT, 95)

When do you hear the beeping? At start-up?
Count the beeps, how many long, how many short?
If the beeps are at start-up, the # and kind of beeps will help us diagnose your problem.

Do you see anything on your screen?

The more details you give us, the easier it will be to resolve your problem.

Joshuacat. :flowers:

Well those are bios beep codes. You are haveing some type of problem and are not completeing boot.
1. You need to know what bios you have and then go to the bios manufacturers site and find those beep codes that will then tell you what the probleem is.
2. In general the most common reasons for not completeing boot are memory failures or video card failures, the black screen caan be a symptom of both conditions.
Try booting into safe mode [hold down F8] while booting and see what comes up when useing selective start-up or what ever your bios calls it to enable one device at a time.
