Yes it is due to faulty RAM. Try taking it all out and trying one stick at a time untill you locate the bad one

Making beeping sound when i start up the computer


Hello,

A beep sound can be due to memory problem.

First use the following steps:

1 Turn off the system and disconnect power cables
2 Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3 Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If you still get a continuous beep sound, the next step will be to re-seat memory modules (after turning off the system).

When I turn on the PS3 it does not boot up.


Hi try to restore/rebuild your database and filesystem.
in worst case do the "Restore PS3 System" this gonna wipe your harddrive, so remember to backup your saves, games that you bough on PSN can be redownloaded fromt he store.

***********************************************

Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

Step 2:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).

Step 3:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
  4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
  5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.

Step 4
: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.
  1. Restore Default Settings
  2. Restore File System
  3. Rebuild Database
  4. Restore PS3 System
