are you absolutely sure that you installed the correct RAM. Could you post which RAM you installed?

if its one stick of 512MB that wont work. thats to much RAM for one slot. you need two 256MB sticks. PC133 is correct. the beep codes according to the dell website seem to be a memory issue. if you have the right RAM reseat them, if that doesn't work take them back for new ones.

RAM is def your problem. As compdoc mentioned above. The Maximum supported memory for this system is 512MB. You need two 256 MB Memory Modules for a Dell OptiPlex GX150 Series System.
