Default Tower boots up, but nothing happens

So I have a Sony Vaio desktop running Windows XP Media Edition. Upon start up, it makes 2 beeps (as opposed to the one it usually does) and my monitor comes on, then says it's switching to power save mode, and goes black. Now I know that the beeps mean something as far as diagnostics go; I just don't know what. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
