How many beeps at startup?
This is an important detail:
1 beep = no RAM installed
2 beeps = incompatible RAM types
3 beeps = no good banks
4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)
5 beeps = processor is not usable
Edit: Read this thread, it may help as well:

Thanks, that is a good thought. I should of said that is starts beeping after the machine is fully booted and the login screen appears. The machine runs fine and there are no unusual messages in the logs. I have reset the pram and the nvram and also reset the SMC. The beeping still persists. It does beep a bit less after resetting the SMC but, then it slips back into its ways of beeping at the odd time now and then. The beeping stops after it has been warmed up.
