check your mobo manual will tell you what ram it takes another problem could be if it is not seated properly it will give error beeps

check what memory you can use you have to use dimms in pairs

The reason you are getting beeps is an incompatability problem. you installed incorrect memory types and the pc does not recognise it. do as suggested check your manual.
