Hardware Problem

You have a hardware problem.
you can check this site for possible hardware error:

Depending on the tones you described, you have a keyboard problem, or the controller in the MB.
Hopefully its just a keyboard.

seems to be one tone, pause, then three tones, pause, then two tones....
I went to the site you recomended, but didn't seem to find that sequence of tones????
