I downloaded the repair manual for the compaq armada\015\012e300 and e500. and used it to find the cmos battery. i removed the\015\012battery and the power supply and unplugged the cmos battery for at\015\012least 5 mins then plugged it back in and hooked up the power\015\012supply...***important*** but left the battery out (according to the\015\012repair manual) and it started right up fine. --sigh--- i have had to\015\012preform this a few times now, but the laptop is working fine and no data was lost.
The sounds are a distorted post code (Power On Self Test). They may be the same pattern as the blinking lights on some laptops. A post code will tell you what the problem is. In this case it will be RAM or CPU or a motherboard error. If it ran hot just before it started doing this then it is most likely cpu. If it ran slow or jerky then may have been ram going out. You should probably expect to need to replace any of those parts unfortunately.

\015\012You can try to re-seat the ram or change its slot that is something you can try at home. Changing out the cpu require the laptop come right apart and unless it is new probably not worth doing unless you can do it yourself.
