Hi :thumbsup:.

If the system indicator reflects a CPU problem...I guess I don't understand why you think it's a memory problem.

Have you checked for possible overheating, proper fans working, and general cleanliness of the internals?

Checked the heatsink/fan for stability and proper functioning?

Based on the BIOS...what are the beeps supposed to indicate?
