Does the beep come while you are looking at the POST screen, or some time after?

For most machines, 1 short beep is normal during POST. It just means that things worked correctly. In addition, if the POST were detecting a failure, I imagine it would not try to boot at all. The fact that you are getting the Windows logo suggests to me that you are in fact passing POST and doing the initial boot.

Have you tried booting in SAFE mode? Try Pressing F8 as soon as you see the Windows Screen.
