What is Harddrive

Question

It started out I was just building my uncle a whole new computer all parts new except the cd-rom drive. Well after getting it all put together, starting it up, then installing windows 2000 and installing drivers.......I then restart the computer thinking its all going to go well but then as soon as i get to windows loading the computer freezes then makes three beep/click sounds and restarts and keeps doing this over and over. I check and make sure all the parts were connected correctly again and that all my jumper setting were correct but this porblem keeps persisting. If you all ahve ever heard of this please let me know how to fix it.
