The following is a much more comprehensive listing of beep codes.
I'd recommend first testing the memory with a Memtest86 boot diskette or boot CD-ROM:

This is a free and very highly regarded memory test. If your memory does show failure and you have more than 1 stick, test a single stick at a time to determine exactly which stick(s) are bad.
