This may be due to - Bad memory chips

Two Beeps :
Parity error or Parity Circuit failure
-Your memory may not be seated properly on the mother board.
-Unplug and plug it properly

Three Beeps :
Bad memory or bad mother board

Four beeps :
Timer failure in the RAM.

Five Beeps :
CPU chip may be dead

Six Beeps :
Keyboard controller may have failed

Seven beeps :

Thank you for the tips, but the beeping is generated by the motherboard and not the operating system. The other thing is that the beeps alter with different BIOS types.

All the same, thank you for the effort.

Arrizx he is wrong. The beep codes depend on the bios and the board they're on.
There is no one set of beep codes for all systems.
Handing out bad info is as bad as not having any.
