The beeps have meaning. Depending on what bios version your motherboard has. Provide detailed system specifications and maybe someons can tell you exactly what you are dealing with. Could be a graphics failure, could be ram.

Without knowing which BIOS is used by your motherboard (AMI, Award, Phoenix, etc), it's impossible to determine what the problem is. It may be a memory or graphics problem as was mentioned, but it may also be a problem with the keyboard. I'm not sure what you mean by "keyboard is off"?
