The beeps are a memory error
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. These are only a few examples of special configuration requirements. 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.

Most likely cause is either bad, mixed or incompatible memory. There's more to selecting memory than just selecting the correct type and speed. Generally I've found that OEM PCs (HP, Dell, Fujitsu) tend to be more picky so it's best to buy matched memory from someone like Crucial or Kingston. Home built PCs tend to be more forgiving where memory is concerned.
Try checking the manufacturers website for suitable memory for the motherboard.

It?s a memory error code, or video card error code (depending on type of beep).
You don?t specified what kind of beeps are. Short, long or a combination of short-long beeps.
Most possible reason is an incompatibility of using modules or the modules not working at the same frequency.
If you remove the installed module you don?t hears anymore the beeps.
If the sound persist, it?s possible when you installed the memory module, you moved accidentally the video card and there is a bad contact. Press the video card in his slot, and try again.

Question; when you go into the bios setup, does your machine state what is loaded in which slots, if so, do you agree?
