Referring to title above, I recently bought a 16 Gigabytes of RAM 2x8 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
, and I installed it into my mobo (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H6...)
then I booted it, got the three beeps, looked online, Google said that it was the 64K Base Memory Failure. I then tried to reseat my old ram which was a 2x4 (4 Gigabytes) and I still hear the three beeps with nothing showing up on my monitor. I tried resetting my CMOS, used the jumper, and removing the CMOS Battery temporarily. Please help ;w;

3 beeps could also be the gfx card.
It depends on the bios.

I've tested to see if it was the gfx card (by removing it), but I doubt it since it worked fine before I decided to upgrade my RAM which was the day before yesterday.
