You have a problem with the memory which gives a continous beep

See the following:

Make sure you have the right memory part for your computer. At the manufacturer's Web site you can look up the part number.

Confirm that you configured the memory correctly. Many computers require module installation in banks of equal-capacity modules.If you have a name-brand computer, visit Kingston's Web site (www.kingston.com)

Re-install the module. Push the module firmly into the socket. In most cases you hear a click when the module is in position. To make sure you have a module all the way in the socket, compare the height of the module to the height of other modules in neighboring sockets.


Swap modules. Remove the new memory and see whether the problem disappears. Remove the old memory, reinstall the new, and see whether the problem persists. Try the memory in different sockets. Swapping reveals whether the problem is a particular memory module or socket, or whether two types of memory aren't compatible.


Clean the socket and pins on the memory module. Use a soft cloth to wipe the pins on the module. Use a PC vacuum or compressed air to **** dust off the socket. Do NOT use solvent, which may corrode the metal or prevent the leads from making full contact.
