HP Compaq nx9010 - continuous beeping, random numbers - will not boot!

Hi,

I purchased a second-hand nx9010 a few months ago. The laptop is old and so out of warranty, but fairly well specced and was great. All of a sudden, it won't boot. It gets past the black HP screen, then displays two columns of random digits, then goes black and continuously beeps at me. I have tried to re-install the OS but it won't boot from CD. Once it starts beeping, it won't stop (no matter what keys I press) until I power off the machine.

I haven't made any changes recently, it just started doing this after I shut down the machine. I have tried replacing the hard disk and RAM, but these aren't the problem.

Could it be a keyboard error....?

Please help....
