Help with 3 beeps-fan running- cleaned memory - no boot

Answers :

3 beeps is a memory problem. That's the BIOS telling you something isn't right. The operating system doesn't matter, this is before the OS. Try like the last reply stated, insert 1 memory stick at a time, and boot the machine trying to eliminate the bad memory stick. It could be an insertion problem also, so re-seat the memory. This should do the trick.

Hope this helps!
