    Welcome to TSG!
    The beeping sound internally are from the motherboard and usually indicate a problem if they are other then the normal startup and shutdown beeps. Since all bios's are different here is a site that will help you determine what the problem may be.

    I would say it is a heat problem. Make sure that all of the fans in the case are working correctly.
