6 long beeps indicates that there is a problem with the memory, take them out, clean the contacts and the DIMM slots and reseat them.
Hopefully this will resolve the problem, if not new memory may be required

Well those beeps tells you that something is going wrong with the hardware. Could be the memory/processor or something going bad on the motherboard. Well you could try a few things (new memory/harddrive/removing all PCI cards except the video card) to try to isolate the problem. But you probably end up at the computer store where technicians can take a look at it. So I would go there first since it's probaly gonna take some time to figure it out anyway. Also try to remove anything you installed recently. Good luck!

If the computer beeps 5 times and flashes a red light it could be a memory failure. You should make sure that the memory is seated right in their slots. Open up the computer and you should see two vertical sticks towards the top of the computer, make sure that they are fully inserted into their slots. If that doesn't work try to find a stick that you can replace them with to see if the memory it self is bad.
