The information on the linked site tells you what to do for whatever beeps you are getting.

their recommendation for a continuous beep with a pheonix BIOS is to reseat the cpu.

Thermal Paste is available on eBay for a couple of quid. There is no substitute, but there are several brands

do you think this will fix the problem

You are describing the problem and we have directed you to a page that offers a solution. Only you can make make a decision that your symptoms match the solution.

Reseating a CPU is not a task to be undertaken lightly. Before you start I would suggest that you view several videos of the task. If you do not put thermal paste between the CPU and the Heat Sink, you will burn out the CPU.
