✔ Best Answer
If you've not seen them already, here are the beep codes (and other info):

4 beeps don't get a mention, although hardware is about certain.
Did this just suddenly happen or was it after you did something?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it has been working correctly & you haven't changed any cards or added new/extra memory, I would start by cleaning the memory contacts & the inside of the comp whilst you are there.
