Usually this is an alarm of some sort.  Possible a temperature alarm from the CPU or motherboard or possibly a fan alarm.  There should be a "PC HEALTH" or similar on the BIOS menu to show you this status.  It may be a real problem with a fan or the heatsink or may just be that the alarm limits are too low.

I agree with jhance.
Something to look at besides temp and fan spinning is the fan -speed-.
Some systems have alarms if the fan turns too slow (indicating soon to fail).

Try to find which application is sending this sound.
Use http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Filemon.html which will how you which files are used and by whom.
Limit it to include "wav" and it will show you only wav files (try it your self to make sure)

if i understand right , the beeps start AFTER login ,right ?
if i'm right so it's not related to bios at all.
i would check for virus,weird programs/services,trojan etc...

We use those Desktops at work.  For us, the beeping was the IR port activating.  If you go into the BIOS and remove the IR port, the beeping will stop.
