Contact Dell. You have a problem with a new PC.

Yep as above you should only have one beep

Not sure what you mean, you should get a bios beep before the profile list as you call it shows any beeps after that could suggest that in transit some or one of your hardware components has worked loose and may need reseating, if you have any sort of onsite warranty call Dell and get them to come and look at it for you..
