You may have a RAM problem or incompatibility.

Hi Bucksboy. Error beeps and shutdown after a few minutes almost certainly signifies a heating problem. Most other failures would probably happen much more quickly. Check that the processor heatsink is seated properly. See here for the meaning of the beep error codes click here
