2 Beeps
Two beeps means there has been a parity error in base memory. This is an issue with the first 64KB block of memory in your RAM. The solution is usually to replace the memory.

there is a option in the bios that i can disable the normal boot beep. and still im getting a single beep. there is no display in the video card but the onboard is working. the computer boots normally after that.
i encountered past problems like the RAM has decrease its memory from 4GB to 1GB but when i reseat the RAM,it returns to its original memory.

so i think the RAM is faulty..

I told you to try a different ram. Or try them 1 by 1 in each slot
