The beeping is caused by the RAM. Either it's not fully seated in it's slot or it's not compatible with your system.

XP needs at least 512MB RAM to run reasonably well, more is even better. I don't know how you can stand it with just 128MB or 256MB. Install as much RAM as your board can handle, but keep it under 3GB. And don't mess with the paging file...let Windows handle it.

"Ccleaner,Defragler,Eusing registry cleaner and I install avast no"

You don't need a separate registry cleaner, there's already one in CCleaner. Also, go to Tools > Startup & see what you have loading at startup. There are very few entries that are necessary. If you have a long list, that means you have a bunch of useless crap running & it's using up what little RAM you have.

And try a different anti-virus program. Microsoft has developed a free antivirus program - Microsoft Security Essentials - it's as good as any freebie out there & it won't nag you to buy it.
