Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1401NX (PS565AA) PC Desktop
I would describe the sound as the computer screaming. Its not emitting from monitor or speakers but the computer itself as soon as its turned on. This started seconds after putting in a second RAM card, but even after removing the card the computer is making the same sound.
Did you remove/replace any screws other than what it takes to open the case? The sound you describe sounds to me like the power supply is in distress, and the noise emminates from it. Check to see that you have not somehow pinched a wire somewhere.

Check you have seated the memory properly in the slot and that no other cards or components nearby have been dislodged in some way. The PC is beeping as its unable to get past its basic power on check due to something wrong with the motherboard. Did you change any other configuration at the same time?
There should be a way of resetting the BIOS which might solve this. If you have the motehrboard manual look up how to clear the BIOS by removing a jumper (little plastic switch thing) which clears the PCs basic configuration. It should be on the motherboard somewhere near the battery usually. This might clear the error but if not you'll just have to get it looked at by someone in person as the motherboard may have been damaged.
