Default My Old Travelmate 6160 (problems)

So recently I've come across an old Texas Instrument Travelmate 6160 (I think it was made in 1997). Anyway, I was using it yesterday for fun because it still worked and everything.

It started up fine, but then one time i tried starting it up but it said the operating system couldn't be found. So I turned it off and tried again and it worked.

Then later, I tried starting it up and I kept getting the same error even after multiple attempts of restarting. I wasn't too worried about it because I was going to reformat the computer anyway.

However, I'm trying to start it up but it's not working. It starts up and all the lights just below the screen and to the left of Texas Instrument light up, but then all but the Turbo and the lock with the arrow light turn off. Afterwords, a series of beeping occur.

Anybody give me a hand with this? This is going to be a really neat project.
