    Using Generic AMI/Phoenix BIOS beep codes i would guess its a memory issue. Check memory type, seating/connections and correct slots are been used.

    However, as already mentioned your mobos manual should have specific information relating to your mobo.
    If you have a POST card handy that may also be useful for more detailed information and looking at the POST process in detail.

    Giving us the specs would be handy. But as said it will say in mobo manual, also as said it will probably be a memory issue.

    Make sure the make and speed of ram is compatible with the mobo and that it is seated properly.
