Try cleaning the contacts on the memory with a soft pencil eraser, remove the dust and then pop them in and out of the sockets 4 or 5 times to burnish the sockets as well.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yes am pretty sure... What else do you suggest? Because if I leave it beeping continuously for about 20 minutes then restart it, it boots up... Its like the memory chips heat up.

Is this something that started out of the blue? Or did you add memory to your system?
Possible the memory is not compatible and the motherboard is trying to find the right parameters to make it work.
Is there a pushbutton on the MB to force the MB to accept the memory?

Try just one stick of Ram at a time.

Try removing the video card if you have one & use the onboard video.

Beeps

1long, 2 short Video adapter error Either video adapter is bad or is not seated properly. Also, check to ensure the monitor cable is connected properly.
Repeating (endless loop) Memory error Check for improperly seated or missing memory.

Repeating High/Low CPU Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.

"Tried cleaning the memory slots with a soft brush and benzine but no luck ):"
Note that cleaning slots with a solvent will not reverse oxidation on the contacts, use the eraser method on the contacts on the memory and popping them in and out repeatedly burnishes the contacts by rubbing them enough with the memory's metal contacts.
Try this but also read the other above suggestions as well.
