CPU Beeps

  pj1664 14:24 24 Nov 03

I was recently given a tower and motherboard together with a cpu installed but i dont know the make and cpu speed so I intalled a hard drive, cdrom,floppy and some ram to find out more about the mobo and cpu but when I power up the pc comes to live but the screen powers up and goes dead after about 2 seconds and there is a 3xbeep sound that comes on intermittenly every 2 seconds the cpu fan spins fine. What could cause this? Please advice. Thank you

There not CPU beeps, there BIOS beeps. Three beeps signal faulty RAM, take out a stick and try again
