pc boot problems

Hi to all

My mate is having problems with his pc and while i do have a bit of pc knowledge im sure that there are people on here with a lot more.Am going this afternoon to have a look.

He has a desktop pc that was working the last time i went round that win xp pro with service pack 2.

I had a message last night saying that when he switches it on it beeps(presume thats the motherboard)and says f1 to restart or f2 system setup.

Am afraid thats all i know so far but would welcome any help.

many thanks

Or run Recovery Console from XP disc and a BOOT/RECONFIG then restart,might help.
