"if" there were 6 beeps instead of buzzing it would suggest
possibly RAM issues.

Try putting your start up disc in and switching it on to see if there is software conflict somewhere.

Probably RAM, but try unplugging the keyboard receiver just in case you have a sticky key.

If you want to bring it into mine we can try some different RAM in it to see if sorts the problem out.
