Desktop will not work, only beeps



HELP! Anyone know how fix this? My windows XP desktop was not used for a
couple of months. Turned it on now and nothing happens except for a beeping
sound about once a minute. The monitor stays blank and none of the monitor
indicator lights change color or status. I have cycled the computer power a
few times with no improvement. I need to access the hard drive to get last
years tax information printed onto paper.

More precise description...When power button is pushed, the fan comes on,
the computer beeps about every 15 seconds, and the hard drive spins up. Then
nothing else new happens. It just keeps running and beeping.
