There aren't any standards on what the beeps mean, so we'd have to know what system you are running in order to give you any specifics.

In general, most computers give a single beep upon POST, which is an indication that the system is working properly.

I'll tell you beeps are different depending on what bios your computer has. You can consult your manual to find out what brand of RAM is recommended for your computer. Sometimes you can enter the brand of your computer into ebay for example "Dell optiplex gx240 RAM " and it will search for the exact RAM for your computer. One time I bought some PC133 for my 240 and it didn't work, instead of sending it back I tried it in my neighbor's computer and it worked so I sold it to him. I then bought the RAM I needed. Anyway your BIOS is either Phoenix, or AMI probably and each use different beep codes.

Try a different ram and see if any difference you see or not.

You can take the ram out and try it one strip at a time. If that doesn't work you may have to buy new ram I found a listing that might help:

I usually buy from ebay but this was all I could find with the information you gave.

What RAM are you using now?

Are there any numbers on your motherboard?
