    so the computer never boots? if so it sounds like a post error and those beeps actually mean something.

    If it is a post error its definately a hardware issue... It could be anything from poorly seated or broken memory or video card, to (ive seen this once a long time ago) no keyboard attached...

    you can look up what various post errors mean in the motherboards manual i assume. it will be like: long beep followed by two short beeps means...
