The sound is not coming from the cpu, but from the speaker within u're case ... Usually the beeps' appears when starting the computer (as warning from the BIOS, that it found a problem). On the motherboard manual, or at the manufactour's site, u should find a list of what each beep means (shot bepp, long beep, combinations ...) and so identify the problem.

But most probably u have a power issue, perhaps a short between the motherboard and the case, so try to isolate the MB. Or even u can remove all components (power supply included) out of the case, so that no components have contact between them (other the connections needed ), and so u;l know for sure if a short is u're problem (presuming that the power supply is good )

U can also try a BIOS update

The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

Asus m2nmx does not support additional ram in win 7

That motherboard supports up to 4 GB. Make sure that the sticks are exactly the same and are put in the first socket of each channel.

Motherboard acer A1100-B1300A.... ????

Knowing the model of the mobo will not do anything if you know it takes
DDR2 5300.

And you can find tons of 1GB,2GB,4GB sticks.

If you want to know what memory MFG are compatible with you system
go to the Acer website.
