redd3865, 1 beep is the error code for "BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure" which is indicative of either a System board failure, covers BIOS corruption or ROM errors. You may have tried to install an invalid driver for your BIOS etc. you will have to give us more details on what you did before we can be of more help.
