M17 R1 - 1 long beep, 2 short beeps

So, my son's laptop now beeps on start and doesn't load the OS at all.

I have seen the beep code chart, but am not sure how the beeps on his should be interpreted. It yields on long beep, followed by 2 short beeps. It doesn't do it constantly like I have seen other post, either.

Last night when I powered it up, it actually started to boot (Windows repair mode), but did the beep thing after it got part-way through the repair. After that, it would just beep (1 long, 2 short) each time I powered it up.

It's an M17 R1 with Windows 7.

Any suggestions?
