This is generally a memory problem. Remove the memory, and try them one chip at a time in each slot. If the memory isn't the issue, then try removing the battery and starting with the supply only. Both battery and memory can cause this, but the beep code is generally for the memory, no beeps with the battery. If both check good, then test the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. If these three check good, then the problem will lie within the motherboard, and you will need to take it in for a professional diagnosis in order to track down the exact problem area. You might also look on IBM's support site for the beep/sound error codes and any troubleshooting for the exact code you have.

Problem with ibm thinkpad r40


The IBM beep code error 1 long 2 short beeps means there is a video card fault. Reseat your RAM because the video card uses some of the RAM. If it doesn't work then the video chip on the motherboard is faulty, the only way to fix is to replace the motherboard - this may not be a cost effective solution.
Connecting an external monitor to the laptop won't work because the video card also sends data to the video port.
