These are called 'BIOS POST Codes' and they vary according to the manufacturer of your BIOS chip. the BIOS manufacturer's name appears briefly when you boot up, or you can hold down the 'BIOS Setup' key (usually the Delete key) during boot-up and get the manufacturer's name from the setup screen. Most generic computers have an AMI, Award, or Pheonix BIOS chip, whilst some big-name systems like DELL & Compaq put their own name on the BIOS.
All the major BIOS manufacturer's POST (Power On Self Test) codes can be found here:

Hey, Tattoolover, if Pip's answer flew right over your head, let me add an alternative:
I'm a beginner, and when I started out two months back, I had heard a queer 'Ding' that persisted through Log-in, til whenever-it- deigned- to-STOP, which could take hours.
But this was a problem with the Speakers, not the Tower's Boot-up Beeps.
If your sure it's a noise from the Tower, disregard my blather.
The sounds from the speaker, however, are easily fixed, from the Adjust Audio Properties function.
