Most likely a warning the HDD is dying.

Something like this happened to me years ago.
I had a 160GB Maxtor drive that started to make sounds like a mobile phone (i.e beeps) when I powered on the PC.
I could also hear the drive clicking so had to gently tap my finger on top of the drive to "unstick" the head to eventually pass BIOS POST and boot into XP and save what could be saved from the drive.
