Default beeping sounds

I was running my desktop just fine for months. I restarted it to apply some AVG updates. Now it is not booting up and I'm getting beeps/beeping from what sounds like the internal speaker. Constant beeps, short in lenght, very fast, no stopping. My Dell Dimension 8250 w/RDRAM and nvidia GX420 Video will not boot either and will consistently hang up on the XP boot-up screen where you see the F2 and F12 options. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try unplugging the pc, remove the watch battery from the motherboard, and hold the power button for a few seconds to discharge the power. Put the battery back in, plug it in and turn it on. What happens?
