Why is my computer beeping?

Question

I know that the internal speaker beeps once when the computer boots up with no problems, but what could be wrong with my computer when it boots up successfully then shuts off after a few minutes followed by continuous

beeps from the internal speaker?

Continuous beeping from a computer usually indicates a problem with RAM Most times these symptoms will occur before the computer boots up and not after a successful boot Try removing the memory sticks from their slots, vacuuming out the tower, especially the memory slots and properly reinserting the RAM
