Four 'Beeps', could indicate a memory issue, if you are comfortable working inside the computer case, try opening the case, remove and reinstall all the memory modules and see if this makes a difference.

If you not comfortable working, with removing and reinstalling components, then I would suggest that you take the Inspiron 530 to a local repair shop. 

Is the power button LED, Steady Blue, or Blinking Blue?

Has any changes been made to the 530 recently?

Is the Inspiron 530 working now?

 The LED on the motherboard is the 'Stand By Power Light' [aka 'flea power'] and indicates the motherboard has power is reaching it.

Two 'Beeps' indicate no memory modules are detected.
 
 

Remove all the memory modules, then install only one module in slot 1 and see if the system boots and if the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module.

Does not boot, move the module to slot 2 and again see if the system boots, no boot, try the module in slot 3, no boot, try installing in slot 4.

Still does not boot, then remove the first module and using the second one, repeat the sequence described above.

Still no boot, try installing any remaining modules, one at a time, using the above procedure.

Continue until you have identified any faulty module [or slot] or reinstalled all modules without error.

Still does not boot, buy a new compatible memory module and try that.

Then if the computer still does not start, it's possible that the motherboard has failed and needs to be replaced.
