Could be loose RAM modules so check they are located in their slots properly and pushed fully home.

May also be faulty RAM. You can test the RAM with Memtest86 which runs from a bootable CD: Emachines laptop with Continuous Beep on Start-up

Download the "Pre-built ISO for Windows": http://www.memtest.org/
Download & install "IMGBurn" from here: http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn/
Use "IMGBurn" to create a CD from the ISO file.
Boot your laptop from that CD to test the RAM.
