Does it post successfully, or does it not get that far?

What the beeps mean will depend on what BIOS you have. Having searched for info on the MSI 7145 motherboard (which specifically has two models: RS480M and RS482M-F/L/FI/IL), I think you have an American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS, which would mean that 3 short beeps indicates a problem with your RAM.

Google is your friend.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
