Model of laptop?

How old is it?

How many beeps are you hearing?

Do you still get the same number of beeps if you remove the hard drive?

 Hp DV 7 Note Book   about 6 years old, it is a constant steady beep at start up.. tried a hard reset by taking the battery out and holding the power button down for 15 seconds, also made sure the memory was seated properly, cleaned out the vents around the fan area, has been booting fine for now.. ty for the reply..

Continuous beeping is supposed to be a RAM problem.  If you have more than one stick of RAM, remove  one and see if it stops.  Then try the other one.
