You'll probably get a better response if you re-post this in the Alienware Club forum. Be sure to include some more details including version of Windows, etc.

One beep means: System Board: BIOS ROM failure

So you might try clearing BIOS by removing the motherboard battery and pressing/holding power button for ~30 sec before installing a fresh battery.

Always power off, unplug and press/hold power button for ~15 sec before opening the case.
