A great starting point to troubleshoot would be for you to provide the specific model you have and the cadence of the beeps you are hearing.
Audible errors usually point to hardware or BIOS problems.
Could the update have been from HP? This symptom can be caused by a failed HP BIOS update. A Microsoft operating system update should not (I guess anything is possible but highly unlikely) cause POST beep error codes.
