I am getting a beep code that sounds like a memory problem, but I replaced the memory and still get the same code. Sometimes my computer will boot up for roughly 10 minutes then freeze up. I just tried resetting the bios by removing the battery and putting it back in. Any help would be much appreciated.

The Corsair memory was what I used up until my computer stopped working, then I bought the PNY thinking I had a ram problem. What happens is I turn my computer on and at the very start of the bios screen it starts beeping, which sounds to me like constant long beeps (memory failure code.) I have tried putting both sets of ram in the two pairs of slots so I don't think it's a bad slot. I'm beginning to think it's a video card problem.
