This is not the problem with RAM. There may be possibity of capacitors in mother board not working properly or SMPS has stopped working. you have to check all ur system configuration and components from an experts.

SOURCE: 3 Beep sounds-No boot

As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module.
If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM.
Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger.
If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.

Hi, Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting. First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply. Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good. Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping means Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals. One beeping means Everything is normal and Computer posted fine. Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error. One Long Beep, One Short Beep means Motherboard Problem.
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps means Video Problem.
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps means Video problem.
Repeated Long Beeps means memory error.
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps means CPU Overheating.

If i reformat my computer, is the beep will not sound again? when i printing my computer begins to beep very long i thought it was the cpu overheating and i put some thermal paste... i turn on my...

No i doubt the beep will go away if you format.The beep or beeps are trouble codes,a warning something is not right.

Usually related to the cpu,memory sticks,or a video or sound card on the motherboard.or a issue with heat.

Check your motherboard manufacture websight for the codes.Usually a set of short beeps is memory.
Try taking the memory sticks out and reseting them back in.

hi Robin.
if your computer is making a beeping sound when it starts. No, you're not crazy, your computer really is beeping, and the sound may be coming from inside your computer, not your speakers.
These beeps are called beep codes and are used by the BIOS (the software that runs your computer hardware) during the POST (an initial test to make sure your computer is OK to start) to report certain initial system errors. If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the motherboard has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to send any kind of error information to the monitor. The beeping, then, is a way to communicate a problem to you when the computer can't show a proper error on the screen.
Follow the steps below to determine what computer problem the beep code is representing. Once you know what's wrong, you can work to fix the issue.

How to Troubleshoot Beep Codes

Figuring out why your computer is making beeping sounds should only take 10 to 15 minutes. Solving that problem that you identify is another task entirely and could take a few minutes to hours, depending on what the problem ends up being.
  1. Power on the computer, or restart it if it's already on.
  2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.

    Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're probably not going to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.
  1. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.

    Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short (or all the same length), and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.

    I know this might all seem a little crazy but this is important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing. If you get this wrong, you'll be trying to solve a problem your computer doesn't have and ignoring the real one.
  1. Next you'll need to figure out what company manufactured the BIOS chip that's on your computer motherboard. Unfortunately, the computer industry never agreed on a uniform way to communicate with beeps, so it's important to get this right.

    The easiest way to figure this is out is by installing one of these free system information tools, which should tell you if your BIOS is made by AMI, Award, Phoenix, or another company. If that doesn't work, you could open your computer and take a peek at the actual BIOS chip on your computer motherboard, which should have the company name printed on or next to it.

    Important: Your computer maker is not the same as the BIOS maker and your motherboard maker is not necessarily the same as the BIOS maker, so don't assume you already know the right answer to this question.
  2. Now that you know the BIOS manufacturer, choose the troubleshooting guide below based on that information:
    Using the beep code information specific to those BIOS makers in those articles, you'll be able to figure out exactly what's wrong that's causing the beeping, be it a RAM issue, a video card problem, or some other hardware problem.
  3. Try to turn off beep sound in the BIOS

More Help with Beep Codes

Some computers, even though they may have BIOS firmware made by a particular company, like AMI or Award, further customize their beep-to-problem language, making this process a little frustrating. If you think this might be the case, or just worried it could be, almost every computer maker publishes their beep code list in their user guides, which you can probably find online.

Intel d101ggc making buzzer sound at equal intervals and then pc hangs.

OK this buzz is suppose to be a beep.
The device you described is called apezo electric speaker and is suppose to beep a post code to help define a problem.

If it's buzzing and not beeping there is either a fault with the piezo or the motherboard is not receiving the amount of power it needs to properly drive the speaker.

OK back to the post code. The patern is important it should be a series of long and short beeps. The fact that it is buzzing and not beeping may make it difficult to determine the difference between long and short beeeps.

Try your best to hear a pattern in it. Whether its constant beeps or 2 short 1 long or any other discernable variation please post back the number of beeps and if there is a long or short pattern.
please post back here

DC-DC board or motherboard. does it boot up from a charged battery (like from another laptop)?

if it works on battery power then i'd look to replace the DC-DC board (its a little board inside the laptop that holds the power jack and a few power-related components)

if it continues to beep even when only on a battery then you should look into a replacement motherboard. and if you have a Compaq V2000, i'd look into a "parts/repair" laptop from eBay or something because that will cost less then just a motherboard.

also the DC-DC board may be built into the motherboard. in that case there is none and the motherboard is the thing you want to replace.
