Usually this means that the memory is defective or has been removed or popped loose in its sockets. Try to reseat the memory DIMMs or replace them.

Hi. I think the problem on your machine is the RAMS if you here the beeping sound. I would suggest that you remove the memory and clean the contact points with an eraser but make sure that you remove all the receduces and also make sure that when you plug them back you should double check if they are properly seated. If you still having the same issue after doing the troubleshooting step then try a known good memory so that you could make sure that the problem is not with the memories you have.

1.It can happen if any antivirus/firewall software blocking access to things . (in which disabling the the software before connecting would fix the issue)
2. Try to update driver for your Touch pad, This could also solve the problem.
