is your computer new and have you upgraded to win xp, i had similiar problems, but my new computer now only works best with windows xp because of the chip etc.

Check your Motherboard manual for what the bleeps stand for Wullie.

Example on mine it states: 1 beep = Refresh failure. the memory refresh circuitry on this motherboard is faulty.

NOTE this is my motherboard message and may not mean the same for yours.
