The first question is, are you attempting to boot from your CD ROM and if so why? I need to understand more about what is happening before I attempt to answer your problem. Are you attempting to fix a problem or re-install your operating system? Do you always boot from a CD and if so, why not the hard drive? Is the same operating system installed on both your laptop and your desktop?

The beeps you are hearing are part of the POST, power on self test, that the computer runs before it attempts to load the Operating system and display the desktop screen.
You need to listen carefully to the beeps and determine the amount, and length of the beeps themselves. Then go to this link, and try to find out what the beeps are telling you.
http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

In my experience, these beep codes are mostly guidelines to steer you in the right direction for solving the problem. It sounds like in your case the hard drive is failing, or failed. But if you have made any changes to your computer, or if someone else worked on it recently, than something might just be unplugged inside, or the RAM needs to be re-seated properly.
Hope this helps you.

Will you please look on the bottom of your notebook for this sticker and provide the exact model as described and located in this sticker. Look for item #1 and post that back to me using the comment box below.

You may also look for a key with letters on them in the same color as the Fn key. You want to find the key with a speaker and a line through it. Press and hold the Fn+the key together. This mutes and unmutes your speakers. There is also keys for volume up and down, usually page up and page down, press and hold the Fn key plus the volume up key. There should be an onscreen display of the volume increase. Does this resolve your problem?
