find out what those beep codes where and where there any changes to hardware before you started having this problem.

If your computer is giving you blue screens and making "constant beeping noises at bootup -- due to previous experiences -- I would incur that the RAM is faulty. Try taking out one stick and seeing what happens. If you have any extra RAM laying around, try swapping out your sticks with that.

Default Back up

I've had harddrive issues in the past, although I don't know if that is what you are experiencing. My computer was basically "hosed" completely (twice!) I've since began regular backups because I could never figured out how or why my computer got so messed up. I've had success with StompSoft's http://www.stompsoft.com/pc-backup/pc-backup.html Try to remember routine backups if you haven't been doing that regularly. It is one less thing to worry about when wonderful Microsoft causes computer issues.
