Need more information to help you with this. What is the make and model of your computer? Those beeps you are hearing are BIOS error codes. Depending on what BIOS your computer has installed these codes will tell you where the problem is. So give us more information and we can take it from there.

Since the BIOS is giving you a beep code, there's a good likelihood that the problem is related either to the RAM or the video. But, yeah, a little more information is needed to make a more accurate assessment.

Describe the way the beeps sound - like one short, two long, etc, and what bios and version do you have?
