    I see, it should be ok booting it once more to double check. You need to count from the first beep to the pause, before the next lot of beeps come.

    Ok,

    It does appear to be a memory problem, so i would double check the ram to see whether they are properly inserted still. If all is ok there, then i would test the ram by using one stick at a time if you have more than one. But if you only have just the one stick then you may have to get your hands on a stick to test. If you can borrow one that would be good.
