Mine just started doing it today. I had already had trouble with the power, I had to adjust the computer and the brick so that my laptop would keep charging. My laptop is 5-6 years old, and it hasn't ever given me problems until this year when it started these power problems. I would really like to know if I need a new cord, or if I have to send it for matinence!
After searching on line it seems the beeping indicates a short in the low voltage cord caused by mechanical damage. My cord had been damaged by vacuum cleaning nearby and so I cut out the damaged part and soldered the two ends together, carefully insulating the live connection from the outer shielding. Voila it worked and is now powering the laptop. It seems the beeping is a sort of diagnostic but not very helpful if you don't know what it's trying to tell you.
