Having problems with your Gateway GT5404 PC Desktop ?

My Gateway GT5404 PC won't turn on. Yesterday it worked just fine. Today, it won't turn on. When I attempt to turn in on it beeps 3 times and then nothing happens.

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012The 3 beeps is a POST error for you base memory. A few things could be wrong; try resetting the modules in their slots, make sure you have the correct memory for your system if you have upgraded and make sure the memory is populated in pairs. (You must have 2 card of the same capacity)
