There is a beep system in all PC's
One quick been means the computer is OK when starting.
one long continuous beep is defined as :
' Power Supply or System Board / Keyboard stuck '

Note: Alternately it could be a Memory module
However it's more likely that it's the above

If you check those two things, you are likely to find the culprit.
If not, you need to post your BIOS and

    OK, MMJB = Music Match Juke Box
    You may have corrupt/missing drivers.
    I also have two solutions for you:

    First the quick check::

    Go to
    Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager

    and see if there are any yellow question marks -

    these are for detected
    hardware with no drivers.

    If you have a CD for the drivers try
    reinstalling them.

    If you aren't sure:

    Try looking up Everest
    (no longer free, but the last free version is at oldversion dot com)
    can scan your PC for the

    make/model of hardware so you can DL the
    drivers from the manufacturers site.

    1 Go to control panel
    2 Add hardware
    3 At "Welcome" screen, press next
    4 Select "Yes, I have already connected this hardware". Press next
    5 Scroll down, and select "Add a new hardware device"
    6 Select "Install the hardware I select from a list"
    7 Select "Sound, video and game controllers"
    8 Select "(standard system devices)" in pane 1, and "Audio Codecs" in pane 2
    9 Press "Have Disk"
    10 Enter "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" in the drop down box and press "OK"
    11 Select "Microsoft Audio Compression Manager" and press "Next" , then "Next" again.
    12 At the security screen, press "Continue anyway"

    It will install, and require a reboot

    If it still does not work, then follow the same procedure, but at point 11 choose "IMA ADPCM

    Audio CODEC" and on the next run select "Microsoft ADPCM Audio CODEC"

    *Just a Side Note

    It would be a good idea to uninstall/reinstall
    Music Match Juke Box Player if you have it

All sound geting a long beep

Hearing a 'beep' is usually to warn you there is a fault. I do not know a single long beep as a code for your Notebook. Turn it on and do not touch anything, and see if there are any short beeps and/or other long beeps, and let us know
Quite often it is a fan problem, can you hear your fan running and does it sound normal?

My N95 has a loud beeping sound when making or recieving calls so loud you cant hear the other person talk.

It appears that you have microphone feedback between Mic. and speaker.Mic sensitivity to high in usual cases or audio output to high or both. Only solution is to have it repaired by an expert.

I have the x1 turtle beaches plugged in but i cant hear anything. There just isnt any sound coming out except for a little buzzing.

Try the X1 on your PC or laptop to check if it's working OK. if you can hear fine on the PC, then there's nothing wrong with the headset and you should check the XBOX connections or RCA splitter cable.
