    Do a search here or at the web of the manufacturer of your Bios, Award ,etc. for the beep code error messages meaning.
    Before you turn your machine on again ,you might want to try and figure out why it overheated in the first place.It only takes seconds to fry a CPU.
    Are all fans running?Clean/reapply thermal Paste to CPU/heatsink.
