\015\012Is the sound you're describing a "beep"/tone? In all likelihood it's yes. At bootup, beeps codes occur if the motherboad/BIOS encounters any error during the POST (Power-On-Self-Test) sequence. Unless just one single beep (all is well), these beeps alert you about, and to the nature of, a problem in need investative/corrective actions on your part.
\015\012
\015\012Refer here and/or here for an index of beep-codes, then determine which beep sequence you're hearing. You'll first need to know which BIOS you have installed. You can determine this quite easily by hitting the "Pause/Break" key on your keyboard in order to freeze the screen at the initial part of bootup when this info is typically displayed.
