Boot from the WinXP CD, choose 'R' to load the Recovery Console, provide the administrator password if prompted, then type chkdsk /r and press 'enter'. This will check your hard drive for errors and will take awhile. When it is finished, reboot the computer. If Windows still won't boot, re-boot from the WinXP CD again - this time press 'enter' to setup Windows now, press F8 when prompted, when it locates your current installation of Windows, press 'R' to repair it.

just Refix RAM sticks and start your pc.Its better you refix the hard disk connectors also. Normally its because RAM issue. Just open the CPU cover and clean the RAM slots and refix RAMs. You can put one by one if you have multiple RAMs. check with different RAM slots.If you still get this sound you need to get new RAMs
