the first bip is BIOS telling you post is fine but when it goes to boot widows their a problem with your drive

1- put in windows cd and try to repair it

2- let it boot and then press r (assuming your with xp)

3- choose your windows (likely 1) - put oyur admin passowrd

4- type in chkdsk /f /r and let it run

5- if it fails you might have to reinstall windows or your HD might of fail.

You can also download a ISO windows boot cd to see if you can save your files before reinstalling / changing HD

Good luck

Make sure you have no CDs or USB drives attached.
Check in the BIOS to make sure you drive is seen.
If it's not seen (and maybe a good idea even if it is), reset the cables for the drive.
