the problem with the old windows machine that stopped working switches on does a noise no sound no video i suspect it is and makes a terrible constant beep too more than hard drive
Each make of motherboard has it own "beep" configuration to tell you what is wrong. Since it is beeping, it is almost certainly a component failure and not the HDD.

Most likely culprits are RAM or a fan failure. They are not the only possibilities, though. Either of those are probably easy to fix. Anything else would most likely be terminal because you'd probably need a new system board.

If you can find someone who can do a free fault diagnosis, in might be worth investigating but it is not worth throwing a lot of money at the device. Even a lowly but modern I3 processor machine would out perform your old PC by a margin.
