Four beeps is an indication of a RAM problem.

Ok I decided to have a look at the lappy myself so took off the back plate today

took out the ram 2x2GB sticks, and took out the H/Drive for a look

checked all cables were tight etc and stuck it all back in , swaped the ram around and hey presto it fired up , and been fine since :-)

so well pleased now

Thanks mickliq for your direction in solving this error :-)
