Your computers motherboard is giving you an audible signal to identify an error it has encountered. Each manufacturer uses different signals to represent different issues. If you have the manual for the computer, the troubleshooting section should explain what the issue is. If you don't have the manual and still have a warranty, contact the support number for your computer. If you are not able to do that then please supply me with the manufacturers name and the model number of the computer if it was pre built, or the motherboards manufacturer and model number if you built the computer yourself.
