Question about Lenovo ThinkPad R61 Notebook
When you first turn your computer on it runs a series of test called the POST, which stands for Power On Self Test. When your computer fails one or more of these test the computer sounds a sequence of beeps that let you know which test(s) were failed.
These are different for different models of computers. You can go to your computer manufacturers web site and do a search for "POST error codes" to find out just what the code means for your computer.
This does mean you have a hardware problem. If you're not real savy with computer electronics you most likely will need to take it to who is but check the codes first, there's no need to pay someone if the problem turns out to be bad enough that the computer isn't worth repairing.
Best of luck to you.

the beeps ate called post
Then what happens does it restart ? or just wont boot up ?
A bit more information please.
Not sure what you mean by 'when the hard drive beeps
does the hard drive start when you turn the laptop on
(at which point a do the beeps occur a single beep isn't unusual) and it stops when you turn the hard drive off - a beep then would be unusual.
I suspect you don't mean that, & if the laptop is working fine otherwise then I wouldn't worry about it or do you mean something else completely?
make sure the ram modules have secure seatings also check all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive the same will apply for your graphics card
hope this helps
