Hi Phililp W, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

The beeps are usually codes from the BIOS indicating that there was a failure. In order to help we will need to know the make and model of your computer. If this is a custom build please provide us with the make and model of the motherboard.

If you have the user's manual try looking up the beep codes.

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

The mother board is an Asus A8N-E. This was a home build I have the manuals and start up disc. I cant find any reference in the manual to the beep codes. The beep sequence is 2 beeps pause then 3 beeps

Beep codes tend to vary by the BIOS manufacturer/developer. The current 3 main categories are Award, Phoenix, and AMI. You might want to visit their websites.
