Hard to say without more detail ...

Make and model of computer ?
Type of BIOS in this computer (Award, Phoenix, etc)?

What pattern is this continuous beep? Rapid short, rapid long, rapid mixture of short and long?

What was the last thing done with this computer before it was shut down?
Any new hardware fitted?

My best suggestion right now would be to check your RAM, bad RAM in a system or none at all will make it beep rappdly when you try to boot it up.

A continuous beep at POST is normally a RAM issue.
