    what do you mean beep, does it keep repeatedly beeping or what? does it only beep when you touch something?

    The continuous beeping in some boards is a memory issue.

    There is a fairly complete list of beep codes and what they mean that is elsewhere on this list. I believe it was created by Tedster.
    Could be a video graphics card failing, memory failure, or a dozen other things.

    Yes, memory or a badly failing hard drive
