So yesterday when I started up my computer it failed to boot. When I power it on, the only thing it does is beep (one short, one long), nothing even comes up on the screen. The fans are still working and the LED for the motherboard is on as well (not sure if that's a good thing or not). I looked up what the beeps meant and apparently it's a memory/hardware issue. I would suspect it's the RAM since it would always run near capacity when I ran the computer. I took it out to see if anything was wrong with it but it I see nothing wrong with it.
Is this simply a RAM problem? Or is it something else?
It is a Compaq Presario CQ5700Y running Windows 7
The RAM on the computer is a 2GB 2Rx8 PC3 10600U
