Unhappy Continuous Singletone Beeping...

... upon startup.

i opened up the case to get a better idea of where the humming was comming from, i cleaned out a few fans and my video card in the process.
the computer starts beeping about 5 secs after i push the power button.

what does this beep code mean?
