Default Won't boot up

I have a G41-m motherboard and when I turn on the computer it beeps six times and then restarts and continues again and again... tried taking out the cmos for a couple minutes but that didn't fix it. Don't know what else to do

Also if you get it to jump start, try to atleast buy a spare stick of ram.
Something tells me that memory is getting ready to give way.
Do me a favor when you log back in to windows xp, vista or 7 look at the error logs that windows might generate and post it back here so that we can really whats happening.

It's a couple month old computer so I'm not sure if that's the case. However re-seating the RAM didn't work which I thought at first it was the Keyboard controller Gate A20 error because of the six beeps. So I'm thinking of replacing the motherboard...

-EDIT

Okay, so I stand corrected... re-seating the RAM actually did work it's just that I was idiotic enough to re-seat both sticks of ram instead of one at a time.

@MikeFuryXP just checked the logs and I can't seem to find anything related to the issues with the post beeps... sorry
