It depends on the beeping noise you hear. If it beeps short but continuouse then it is probably power problem possibly the battery. You can use a guide to the beeps to determine what exaclty is causing the probpem it might well be the hard drive is gone.

above is a service manual, this has everything you need to troubleshoot, & repair.
I suspect, the Inverter for the screen, is flakey, you most likely will need to attend to that. But work through the troubleshooting in the manual, and you will soon sort iy.

If the computer is out of warranty, you dont have anything to loose. Have the northbridge and video chips re-flowed. You can do this using a heat gun, but
you have to be very careful not to destroy your board. This is a similar problem that XBOX360 owners were having with the red ring of death. These boards run very hot and over time and many cycles of heating up and cooling off the
chipsets separate from the mainboard and your computer becomes useless.
I dont have a board in front right now but if my memory serves me right place
the board in front of you so the hard drive connections are on the left side of
the board and the CPU socket is facing up. the 2 chips you want to work on
are just to the right of the CPU socket and just above the CPU socket. Be
sure to remove the CPU before you put any heat on these chips. Use circular
motions with the heat gun on HIGH. You may need to get some flux to put around each chip before doing this, but in my case I didnt have to. There was plenty there already. Computer worked for about 6-7 months after my fix and then needed the same repair again. If you want to see this done there are a lot of videos on the XBOX360 being done on youtube so to kinda give you an idea of how to do it. Might not be worth the trouble and you might be better off parting out the machine and just buy another one. Its all up to you, I hope this helps
I just bought a new system
