Hi there,

If your computer is beeping straight after turning it on, it is a hardware fault so maybe your cpu/motherboard/ram/power supply have some problems. However your data should be safe (just don't kick your computer).
To find out what is the problem, you have to listen to the beep codes that comes from your computer and then go online to find out what that beep code mean by searching the beep codes for you motherboard. e.g (if it is 3 short beeps, it may be a ram problem).
Once you have found which hardware is faulty. Open up your computer case and reinstall that faulty component. It may be that dust has got into the electrical contacts so reinserting the component might fix the problem. If it still doesn't work after reinstalling the component. You might have to buy a new one of that faulty component.

Hope that helps
