I DO NOT HAVE THE NEC START UP DISK.... PLEASE HELP.
Beep sound? Is it one beep or a series of beeps. If it is one beep that is your system telling you that it has past the POST test (power on self test). If it is a series of beeps, this could be the key to your issues. Record the beeps, regarding if they are long, short, how many etc. There are websites that will decode the beeps for you. Such as www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes
If it is only one beep and going directly to "standby" you may be experiencing a power and/or heat issue.

try starting it in safe mode: when booting press F8 continuously until you hear a beep. When/if it can start in safe mode go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore; and choose a date when you know your computer was working okay then press restore. When it has finished it will reboot, if it asks you what mode you want to use to start press start windows normally.
Joelmar, you are incorrect. This model was also sold with xp, I'm typing this on one. If you still have the original Hdd and have not formatted the recovery partition, boot up the laptop whilst holding the f11 key. This will start NEC recovery and allow you to reinstall the system, drivers included. Back up first!
more than likely those are beep codes and should give us an idea of what is going on. Typically there is a specific pattern of long and short beeps. If you can identify them for us we can start the troubleshooting process
