Try this:

for i = 1 to 5
     Beep
     Doevents
next i

( I haven't tested it 'cos I don't have speakers at the moment )

If this doesn't work then try using Timer to do the beeping in some time interval.    (Maybe the loop goes too fast.     Loop is finished even before the first beep finishes )

Create command button and a timer:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Timer1.Interval = 300
    Timer1.Tag = 0
    Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Timer1.Tag = Timer1.Tag + 1
    Beep
    DoEvents
    If Timer1.Tag = 5 Then Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------------

All the beeps are merged together.
Try this
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Long
For i = 0 To 5
     Beep
     For j = 1 To 10000000
     Next j
Next

Timer method works fine for me.
The lowest value of Timer1.Interval that gives multiple beeps on my comp. is 50. Everything larger than this works fine.
