The beeps are telling you something is not right.
Every beep is different and I'm not 100% on what means what.
Most likely something is not inserted right into the motherboard.
Go back and check you inserted the ram correctly, if that dosn't work try checking your cables (ide, power, etc.) and your cards (video, sound, etc.) as they might have slipped out of place when inserting the ram.
You might even have a bad/faulty part in the motherboard. Check the new ram stick and see if it works without it.
These basic troubleshooting steps should help you find the problem. If not it could be the cpu is burnt out.....the way to know this is if you unplug it, the beeps will disapeir or change completely.
Maby someone else on FixYa could tell you what the exact beep could be but I'm pretty sure its just something not plugged in right or a faulty part like I had just mentioned. Either way your computer should work fine once the problem is traced and fixed.
