Laptop screen flickers and color is distorted

My laptop is a tecra S1. It is about four years old. It has horizontal lines and lateral pin lines all across the screen. They flicker and the color of pictures is very distorted. I can read text fine on it, but anything with color is all messed up. The predominant color of everything is pink. I can see outlines of pictures, but not the correct color.

Toshiba Tecra S1. My laptop has power but will

It has a memory problem, take the laptop to your local store and ask if they will test the memory for you, if it is the problem then you will have to purchase a new memoy module.

When powering up I get 2 short beeps and one long one.

The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
