Three beeps is normally a memory problem.

Unplug the power cord, lay the tower on it's side (I assume you have a tower?) & take out ALL the RAM. Take the original stick & run a pencil eraser along both sides of the contact edge, then wipe it with rubbing alcohol. Make sure it's 100% dry before reinstalling it. Take a good close look at the memory slot & at the contact edge of the RAM...notice the 2 notches? Make sure they line up when you insert the RAM in the slot. Push down firmly until you hear it click in place & double check that the locking tabs on each end of the memory slot are fully locked in place. Plug in the power & try booting up.
thanx for reply sir,I followed ur instructions, I noticed that the RAM is not going inside the slot completely its tilted on one side also the notch on one side is closing on it properly.I doubt it was always like this. I also tried foricbly but its not going properly.what should i do? Thanx again for ur help
thanx sir for ur reply, I followed ur instructions, I noticed that the RAM is not going in properly even after forcing it.Its tilted on one side and also the notch on the one side is closing only. I doubt it was always tilted like this. Is it normal to have one side slightly not inside the slot? Or i have to isert it somehow?
