What you are hearing is a "post error code".

The codes vary depending on the manufacture.
For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".

Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error.
If so, you can try clearing the CMOS.
You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.

The beeping is a bios error code. Get the model of the motherboard and get manual to it . it should reference the beep codes to what the problem is.
