If you hear only 1 or 2 beep fast and then that means that your computer is find If you hear a long beep and then 3 or four beep then It might be a video card problem or Memory is not compatible If you Install a new memory recently, then this might been the problem because you install a incompatible memory, so just take out the RAM and boot the computer
