    One of my computer makes beeping sound when I start it. It lasts for ever and the computer does not start. So I push a restart button until it does not make any sound and start nicely. I have to do it more than 10 times and it takes more than 15 min to start XP pro.
    I am planning to reinstall xp pro. But will it stop the sound ? Or is it something wrong with hard wares?

    I also tried to reinstall xp pro. I set up the boot drive in the cd rom, but I am not able to reboot from cd rom either.
    What can I do ?

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Try another PSU could be that your current one is faulty.

    PSU stands for power supply unit, you say you have to restart computer several times before it works, this *could* be due to a failing psu, however there are other software related issues that could be the cause, my guess however is the PSU, if you can, either test you current one with a multimeter if you know how to, or replace the old one with a new one.
