Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

Turn on Pc, Continually beeps 6 times then shuts down

\015 I was moving my pc and dropped it on the floor from about 2 feet (onto carpet) then I hooked all the cables up and after turning the start button on all runs smoothly (seemingly) until the screen where you can press the Delete button. Then the problem occurs.\015\012A continual beeping sound once a second every 2 seconds (or very close together) for about six times then computer shuts down. I thought it might have something to do with a screen or printer so tried it a couple of times with only power hooked to it and same thing happened.\015\012Then I tried to enter the PC set up screen (pressed delete during boot up) and that prolonged the PC's ability to stay on for about 15 - 20 seconds.\015\012What are your thoughts?\015
