In http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm you'll find what does no beep, 1 beep, 2 beeps means for each type of BIOS
I have had a problem in Win XP for some time.
When I re-boot or start up about a minute lator I will get a sound that comes from my CPU case that sounds like a beep or a modem used to sound when making a connection before I got DSL. about any software program running including my start up button on XP or the menu bar it is on will be discolored a entirely black over icons and words. I fear this to be a virsus or worm , but when I use my security software 'all free versions' Microsoft anti spyware, AVG, Spybot S and D , It never finds anything that fixes this problem. 'but just thinking, I only Quarintine my found problems, Should I be deleting them?'
Any suggestions what this might be?
Could a program be using my modem to try to dial out to Lord Vador and the evil empire even though I have SBC DSL? and don't use the modem?
