    I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop that I just bought in January. The operating system is Windows XP home edition. I've never had any problems with it, but as of yesterday it started making a horrible, loud beeping noise every time I start it up. The only way to stop the noise is to either turn off the machine or press the space bar, and then Windows will start.

    Also, the computer has begun freezing at random times for no apparent reason. I have to turn the computer off when this happens.

    I have no idea what could be causing it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The "beeps" will be telling you whats wrong.
    The number of beeps , sequence or type of beep is important.
