Re: error signal ASRock P4VM800
When you open to you're bios menu, either at the top or at the bottom of the screen will be a name of you'e bios. In you're case the name is at the bottom of your bios menu. (American Megatrends Inc.). Or for short AMI You could search google for, AMI bios beep codes.
And you can click on this link, which shows what AMI say's about 3 beeps. http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm
You need to test you're memory. (Only if cleaning the memory has did not change the beep error beeps).
First remove you're memory & blow out the DIMM slots with canned air. Clean the copper on the memory with house hold alcohol on a lightly dampend cotton swab. (Let it dry), (Do not touch the copper with you're fingers. Re-install you're memory.
If you have more than one DIMM. Remove the bank farthest from the CPU & boot the PC. Did you hear the 3 beeps? Remove the the next bank & re-install the one you removed first in to the slot closest to the CPU. Boot the PC, again did you hear the 3 beeps?
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Other cpu`s than them on the list, does not fit the mainboard. This will cause the mainboard not to boot up, when the cpu is wrong. The (wrong) cpu will fit the socket, but it does not fit the cache size, fsb, and so on.
What exactly is the beep sequence you hear? Please refer to this THREAD for details about Asrock Motherboard Bios Beep Codes. You can also refer to this FAQ for better understanding (3rd question). The beeps you heard should be with one of the mentioned sequence. You should troubleshoot the problem depending on the beep codes.
Let me know with more details if you need further help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Please count the number of rapid beeps. 3 short beeps is a memory error. 8 short beeps is a display memory error. 9 short beeps is a ROM Bios checksum error and 10 beeps is a CMOS shut down read/write error.
The solution will depend on the error. For a memory error, remove all of the memory sticks then reinsert each one separately and reboot the computer. If the board continues to beep 3 times, that stick is bad or the memory slot has failed.
