    one of the sticks is either faulty, or not put in properly, or it's the wrong type of RAM

    the beeping is just telling you there is something wrong with the ram - put it in properly and it will be fine - although if it is seated properly and still beeps, then your ram is faulty or the wrong type for the system...

    ......or your PC is REVERSING ....:-D

    i had this problem for about 4 months before my pc completely gave up on me :-(
    glad i know what it is now though, thanks guys
